The Art of Darkness

Fantasia Screencaps

October 17th, 2008 by Cobwebs

Fantasia ScreencapThe Monster Memories blog (tagline: “Reviving Horrors from the Past”) has posted a nice selection of screencaps from the “Night on Bald Mountain” sequence from Fantasia. It’s a shame that Disney doesn’t offer some of these as art prints; I’d love a couple of big framed prints in the kitchen. (Along with the Sam McKim Haunted Mansion concept art, which I coveted all the time I worked for Disney and now that I can afford is no longer available, dammit. But I digress.)

Be sure to explore the rest of the MM blog as well; it’s a trove of artwork and images, focusing mainly on classic science fiction and horror.

(Fun bonus fact: Vladimir Tytla, the artist responsible for creating Chernabog, also created the Sugar Crisp Bear. This is somewhat akin to discovering that the creator of the Pillsbury Doughboy does Iron Maiden covers on the side.)
