Exciting news from Odd City Entertainment. They’ve announced a very limited licensed run of legendary animator Don Bluth’s classic animated adventure fantasy film, Secret of NIMH. The print evokes childlike wonder in an illustrative scene with Mrs. Brisby, a magical amulet called “The Stone”, Nicodemus, Great Owl and other fantastical imagery of the classic, NIMH.
THE ARTIST – MARK LONE
Mark Lone, the print’s artist, shared his inspiration, “Being a fan of 80’s animation, I must admit, I wore out my VHS tape of The Secret of NIMH, my favorite Don Bluth movie. I learned so much during the process of making this piece while studying as much as I could from the movie concept sketches and character designs (some even by Don himself). I realized after starting this print that I have always drawn owls (and I have drawn a few of owls) very dark and ominous, much like “the great owl”… it was at that point I recognized how much this movie had impacted my artistic style subconsciously, even when I was a kid. So thank you to everyone involved with the making of such a great movie.”

This was my favorite movie as a child. The print is amazing. Thank you for sharing and reminding me to share this movie with my son.
