Favorite *Animated* movies—from a Beach Artist

Untitled-1

So my impending trip to Disney World next week has got me feeling super excited and creative! Let’s just say that I have been going on a little Disney kick lately.

I recently watched a YouTube video where somebody counted down their favorite 55 Disney animated films. They played snippets from each film as they were numbered off. The video awakened a stream of inspiration within me to create my own list. However, my list is my top 30 animated movies, and it isn’t just Disney. It is all of the studios!

There is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t be an artist and have my own art business if it weren’t for animated cinema. After all, I like animation more than live action Hollywood films any day of the week. I have a FIERCE and joyous love of animated movies. When I made my list I was surprised by some of the newest Pixar and Disney computer animated films that took some of the tops spots, especially since I’ve always been a sucker for hand-drawn traditional animation. I am a painter at the end of the day and love to use my hands! 🙂

Some of these movies haven’t even budged since I was a young boy, which was pretty cool to see. So without further ado, let’s get right down to my favorite animated movies!
