Eugene Salandra

A New Jersey native, I studied film and television at New York University, and drawing at the Art Students' League of New York. Excepting a brief Benedictine monastic sojourn, my life has been occupied with practicing the art of animation. Mentors John Canemaker and the late Tissa David were among my influences. Favorite things include drawing, watercolor, tea and herbalism, yoga, meditation, music, theatre, puppetry, crochet, nature strolls, and vegetarian cooking.

Cinderella III: A Twist in Time

This storyboard sequence was done under the fine direction of Frank Nissen, for the Disney picture Cinderella III: A Twist in Time.  It "reads" even without the dialogue, although I have included here a line I added at the end to emphasize the cruelty of Cinderella's jealous stepmother.  (graphite and black china marker on paper, c.
