Adam steadfastly did not want me to post about this, but I really don’t give a crap. If I blogged about all the things Adam didn’t want me to blog about, I would never be at a loss for ideas. I also would not have to open some posts with the dreaded line “I didn’t know what else to post about…”
In 1946, Salvador Dali teamed up with Walt Disney to bring his already vivid art to life in the form of a cartoon. The collaboration was not officially completed for 58 years, but it was well worth the wait. When a friend told me about the clip, I was appalled. I’ve always adored the artwork of Dali and the idea of him illustrating a fuzzy singing squirrel or floppy bunny made me upset. In reality, Dali’s style holds true and truly mesmerizes. You can see hints of most of his most recognizable work throughout the piece, but not cartoonified. The result is eerie, haunting, and undoubtedly surreal. I hope you enjoy it.

Dali has long been a favorite of mine and not only because we share the same birthday. Tell me your thoughts on his work with Walt or his art in general.
