You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Season of the Witch

Although usually referred to as the Witch, the Old Peddler Woman who offers a poisoned apple to Snow White is not actually a witch. But why quibble? The Peddler Woman is the wicked Queen in a supernatural disguise, and the Queen is of course an evil sorceress. Sounds like a witch to me! Anyhow, here’s a page of art from Disney Dossiers, the book by Jeff Kurtti for which I did the image research. The majority of the art is by two of Disney’s most talented and versatile artists: Joe Grant—who designed the Evil Queen and the Peddler Woman for Walt Disney’s animated masterpiece, Snow white and the Seven Dwarfs—and Ken Anderson, who not only worked on Snow White but also designed the Snow White attraction for Disneyland, as seen in the pictured artwork. You can get Disney Dossiers here , but in the meantime contemplate the fearsome Witch, I mean, the Peddler Woman—an outward sign of the Queen’s inner evil.

Thanks for the post about this book. It is on my to-get list.

I've heard great things about it--knowing that you worked on the book will add a nice twist to reading it.
