Aladdin weirdness:Genie of the lava lamp
When you make an animated film, you create thousands of drawings that you won't use. It's just part of the process. Sometimes you just get an idea and you have to go with it. You never know where an idea will take you. Here's one of those goofy ones that I did while doing visual development for Aladdin. Usually, one doesn't spend a lot of time on these because you know it probably won't be used. But, you never know what can happen when you rub the magic lamp. (RUB TO ENLARGE IMAGE, I MEAN CLICK)
Now that I look at again, it kind of looks like what the director of Aladdin, John Musker, might have looked like during the 1960's. John is one of the most incredible caricaturists that I've ever met.
