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.

"Anything You Want" from Sofia the First

This song sequence, "Anything You Want," was done for a recently-aired episode of Sofia the First, under the fine direction of Jamie Mitchell at Disney TV Animation.  Megan Mullally provided the marvelous voice track, and the original inspiration for the staging was Gwen Verdon's performance of "Whatever Lola Wants" in Damn Yankees.
