The Art of Glen Keane

Glen Keane is not a name known to many but he is an accomplished artist who worked on many Disney films including Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and much more besides. Having left Disney in 2012 Keane has pursued more personal animation projects and the results are stunning. Below are two wonderful examples of his work; Duet follows the life and love of a boy and girl from birth and Nephtali follows the journey of a ballerina who transcends the dance. Both are beautiful and show the power of traditional 2D animation. I must admit that Duet struck a chord with me, particularly the scene of the young girl growing up as having recently become a father to a girl I get more emotional about stuff like this. Anyways enjoy!
