During which time he was privileged and honored to directly study under the late Maurice Nobel, background designer/painter of Disney and Warner Bros fame.

Limited Edition Animation Cell which was included in the films induction in the National Film Registry, an honor bestowed on only 100 films to date for being "among the most culturally, historically or aesthetically significant films of our time," becoming the first-ever animation film to be inducted.
