(Disney, 1952) This is the original portfolio of artwork that Rolly Crump submitted to the Disney Studio in 1952 as part of his application to the Animation Department. At the time, the only samples Rolly had of his work was his High School art portfolio, which contained various illustrations and paintings that he would describe as resembling cartoons more than fine art like other applicants would have submitted. This portfolio contains 18 samples of Rolly's artwork in a variety of media and ranging in size. Years after being hired, Rolly would be told that his portfolio was the worst portfolio ever submitted to Disney, and that they were amazed Rolly was hired at all. Evidently, they saw something in his work, as this portfolio helped launch an incredible career with the Disney Studio and the Disney Parks. This significant set of original artwork is in good condition with some expected wear from use and age. Some illustrations have edge-discoloration or wear.
