Drawing from the visual worlds of science and nature, the human figure, the grand tradition of American illustration, Japanese scroll paintings and woodblock prints, fantasy illustration, and great artists of Europe, Elliott’s work strikes the viewer at first with a powerful tableau and draws them in to experience the subtlety and beauty within. Beyond the pictorial impact of his work, themes personal to him such as body image, environmental preservation, and social and psychological repression weave themselves throughout his work.

Stuart Ng books signing event

Craig Elliott

If you haven't heard already, I will be at Stuart Ng books  signing and sketching for his customers on Saturday February 11th.

Stuart has a special anouncement page for the event on his website:

Hope to see you there!

The first transport is away!

Craig Elliott

I just sent the first batch of book orders out, and they all include free sketches!  You all should be getting your books in 2-9 days (according to USPS)  Thanks again for the orders, and keep them coming!

Remember, the books are still shipping with sketches on signed bookplates, but this won't last forever.


European appearance -2011

Craig Elliott

If you are in Europe, or will be travelling there, and want to catch me and have an opportunity to invest in some prints or original art, I will be travelling this year to the Netherlands in September to exhibit with Flesk Publications booth at the Breda Strip Festival from September 9th to the 12th.  I will be there with Gary Gianni, Bill Stout, Mark Schultz and Petar Meseldzija in support of the Flesk Prime book which features all 5 of us.  I think this will be the ONLY time all 5 of us will be in 1 place with this book, so it should be a pretty special occasion!  

For those of you who have not heard of the book here is a link to it on the Flesk Publishing Site:

Breda is in the southern part of the Netherlands, so is quite accessable from many European countries. 

I will also be visiting Belgium, Paris and London before leaving Europe, so if you would like to meet for a meal or hang out in a museum, let me know!   I'll be doing lots of eating and museum going while there!  


My art at the Disney art retrospective and book in New Orleans

Craig Elliott

Doug Rogers (Art Director of Shreck) turned me on to this show and accompanying book tracing the history of disney art. Amazingly and to my massive surprise I have several pieces in the show and in the book. Who knew?  I ordered a case for sale on the site and at conventions, so look for it soon.  I only saw 1 painting in the book and it is a double page spread of a "The Princess and the Frog" painting that is NOT in the art of book.  It's good to see things not repeated over and over.

I plan to make a trip there soon and will do a book signing when I go to the museum. Stay tuned for dates and times!  

This is BIG for Disney art fans.  The ARL (Animation Research Library)  that stores all the art that is done for each film, has not shown this art before to the public. The library is only for employees and artists working on Disney films and shows. I have seen some of this work, as they occasionally put on shows at the studio, but never like this.  If you are into Disney art and want to see what it REALLY looks like, GO!  There is always a big difference between images that are reproduced in books, or in a DVD extras clip and the real art!  

 From the NOMA (New Orleans Museum of Art) website:

Dreams Come True showcases original artwork from legendary Disney animated films, including Snow White, CinderellaSleeping BeautyThe Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, and will feature a children's section celebrating Disney's connections with jazz music and the Crescent City. The artworks, on loan from the Walt Disney Studio Animation Research Library, will be accompanied by film clips to demonstrate how individual sketches and paintings lead to a finished celluloid masterpiece. Organized by the Walt Disney Animation Research Library and the New Orleans Museum of Art, this once-in-a-lifetime exhibition, which cannot be seen anywhere else in North America is set to coincide with the premier of Disney's upcoming animated feature, The Princess and the Frog, set in New Orleans during the 1920s Jazz Age.
