ABOUT TIM ROGERSON:
Tim Rogerson, one of the top selling artists for Disney Fine Art. As a rising star in the art world, Rogerson casts his artwork with a very evident energy and passion. Inspired by the works of Edgar Degas and Malcolm Liepke, the North Carolina native has embarked on an artistic journey that has taken him from Degas to Disney to darling of the industry.
Mr. Rogerson grew up living the everyday life of a kid, playing outside and "hanging out" with friends, however, the artistic urge to create was always present, compelling him to apply the pictures and images in his head to paper and canvas.
Every child has a dream. For Mr. Rogerson, it was to be an artist as well as satisfying his desire to return to his home-state; back to the magical kingdom from which he came. Of course being surrounded by the whimsical images of Disney characters, even after his family moved to North Carolina; his father was an avid Disney collector and supporter, didn't help curb his appetite for the Sunshine State. However, it was these images that helped form some of Mr. Rogerson's style, which has begun to earn him critical acclaim.
The acclaimed animated dialogue-free 1940 Disney film Fantasia popularized the story from Goethe's poem, and the Paul Dukas symphonic poem based on it, in one of eight animated shorts based on classical music. In the piece, which retains the title "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", Mickey Mouse plays the apprentice, and the story follows Goethe's original closely, except that the sorcerer ("Yen Sid", or Disney backwards) is stern and angry with his apprentice when he saves him. Fantasia popularized Goethe's story to a worldwide audience. The segment proved so popular that it was repeated, in its original form, in the sequel Fantasia 2000.
