Milt Kahl Day

Again, some beautiful drawings of Merlin from Sword in the Stone.   The first is a drawing already finished for the scene.  The second looks like a first pass to find the pose and expression that he wanted.  The third one is a drawing that he did over or for Ollie Jonhston's scene.


  1. if these are in your private collection.. I am jealous! I have a few Milt originals but these are making my day... thank for posting them.


  2. Even those ruffs are so confident. Love how he worked with such strong silhouettes.

  3. These are so good! Thanks for posting!

  4. love how you continually share this stuff out, much appreciated ;-)

  5. First of all, thank you for sharing!

    Second, would you per chance have any more drawings of Wort/Arthur? I am tattoing my arm with characters of "Sword in the stone", and it would be nice to get some clean black/white drawings :D

    Have already tattoed the Wolf, have chosen a Merlin, but need the others. I am choosing random character poses, and not the ones on the box (f.ex. wort grabbing the sword)

    Love your blog, and dont mean to nag :)

    Keep it up!

  6. A few years back Disney had the sketch book series.It would be great if you would be able to create a new sketch book for the Sword in the stone including backgrounds.

  7. Oh man, thanks for these. I LOVE the stuff from Sword in the Stone. There's just something about it I can't put my finger on. Gorgeous, thanks again!!!

  8. I've been learning so much from the top drawing. Thank you so much Sandro!
