(insert Lion King opening chant here) Hi friends. My name is John Axtell.

Just like so many of you out in the great wide somewhere, I love Disney. I love how the characters, films, and parks "bring  joy and inspiration to all the world." 

I started this project to not only express my adoration for Disney, but also push myself as a writer and artist. Let's just say this project is to me as tower walls were to Rapunzel. Every few weeks I will unveil a book themed around or written by a character from an animated Disney movie. I intend to write and design a book for each of the animated Disney films, so with 55 and counting, it is going to be quite a magic carpet ride.
