Invisible things by Noëlle Maline

With the flicker of a bird .. I prefer distractions and being interrupted . These days , I am a luggage organizer , book filer and background diorama painter .. I look at the night sky and watch old films .. Collect shadows and uncertainties .. I make art with fragments and broken images .. Paper , things and sounds .


happy birthday to Walt!

it's Mr. Disney's birthday today.
December 5th, 1901.

[here he is in a trailer screenshot, 
1937 for snow white]

I think a trip out to his park would be most 
appropriate for this occasion.
i will have some popcorn and 
say hello.

[Walt was an ambulance driver during WW1
and here with ambulance decorated by himself]

here's a little about 
how he founded Laugh-O-Gram Studios:
In May 1922, Disney founded Laugh-O-Gram Films with $15,000. The company got an $11,000 contract to produce six fairy tale cartoons forPictorial Clubs, Inc., which went bankrupt; a seventh fairy tale was sold to them separately. Among Disney's employees on the series were several pioneers of animation: Ub IwerksHugh HarmanRudolph IsingCarmen Maxwell, and Friz Freleng.
The company had problems making ends meet: by the end of 1922, Disney was living in the office, taking baths once a week at Union Station.
Thomas McCrum, a Kansas City dentist saved him from total failure when he commissioned Disney for $500 for Tommy Tucker's Tooth[1][2], a short subject showing the merits of brushing your teeth.[3]
After creating one last short, the live-action/animation Alice's Wonderland, the studio declared bankruptcy in July 1923. Disney then moved to Hollywood, California. Disney sold his movie camera, earning enough money for a one-way train ticket; he brought along an unfinished reel of Alice's Wonderland.

and i just want to say thanks..
 for creating such a 
wonderful place for us all to go 
for showing us how to be 
magical and creative ourselves....
and to never stop trying.
