George Scribner Paints Infrastructure

Animation Colleague

I first met George Scribner at Disney in 1986.  He was the director on “Oliver and Company” and I was an apprentice animator at the time. 

George is now a fine art painter with Disney and the official artist for the Panama Canal Expansion.  He spends a lot of time painting in a hardhat and safety gear while working on his Infrastructure Paintings.

I completely identify with this because I spend many hours daily creating art in safety gear.

He uses bright, fun colors in a loose style that makes me want to keep looking and looking at his images. 

I love the intense, quiet concentration and brilliant clothing of the girl in “La Cuna.”  The brilliant primary colors of “Dredge” contrast with the brutal subject matter. 

These contrasts in his work are an extension of his wry and dry sense of humor and irony.
