Artist Series - Day 51: Kay Nielsen

Kay Nielsen is one of my favorite artists from the "Golden Age" of illustration.  He started out on books, and then moved into visual development for animation at Disney.  I wish I could say his life ended well, but his illustration style fell out of favor and he died broke and depressed.  His friends and family literally couldn't give his work away to museums.
