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.

The Walt Disney Animation Studios ARL on Facebook

If you are a Facebooker you'll want to join a very special group on Facebook—The Walt Disney Animation Studios Animation Research Library. The mission of the ARL is described on the page as "Entrusted to conserve and protect the artistic heritage of Walt Disney Animation Studios, and to ensure the ability of the Walt Disney Company to utilize the collection, 'in-house,' as a creative resource." Even if you are not "in-house" you can join this group and find out about some of the wonderful projects the treasure trove that is the ARL is involved in, such as books, DVDs, the Mary Blair exhibit in Tokyo and the Princess and the Frog exhibit in New Orleans. You will even come across some of the expert, helpful and friendly professionals I work with on my projects, such as Sketches, the Official Magazine of the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Be sure and join the ARL on Facebook.

Wow, visiting the ARL on Facebook is so much nicer than visiting it in person. No one demands a job number and I don't have to put on those little cotton gloves! :-)
