Carpet sketches by Ed Gombert

Drawn2gether, an animation blog run by a handful of (ex) Disney animators remising working at Disney during the second golden age of animation. Roughly 10 years from The Little Mermaid (1989) up to Tarzan (1999). In the archive for Aladdin I foundsketches of the Magic Carpet by Eb Gombert, he made one of the earliest storyboards and character sketches. Of course because it’s a rug the design didn’t change that much as the production hummed along. The post reveals that Tom Cardone did Carpet’s Arabian pattern design for the table cloth. IMDB credits him as background artist for a number of Disney productions up to The Little Matchgirl.
