This artwork has been known since the 1980s. It was also used (partly) in
Disney comics in Holland. The sketches were done by Carson Van Osten.

Van Osten's comments:

It started as a slide presentation for my boss to show at the Disney meeting
in Frankfurt. It went over so well that he asked me to expand on it when he
returned. They printed 2000 copies and mailed it to all the Disney offices.
My friend John Pomeroy asked for some to give to the animators at the
studio. that was the time when the animation training program was going on.
Frank Thomas saw it and used it for an animation class he was teaching at
the Screen Cartoonists Guild. That's how some sketches wound up in the book
that he and Ollie wrote, "the Illusion of Life".
