To mark Ronald Searle's 91st birthday I rallied the artists of Pixar to each contribute a page in a special Pixar sketchbook.   We filled the whole book with over 70 birthday wishes and sketches.  Co-ordinating everyones' schedules proved tricky so we missed Ronald's birthday on March 3rd but he seemed delighted with the book when he finally received it.  This was his reaction:

". . . Federal Express were at the door at dawn this morning with a bulging box.When all it contained was revealed, I was totally overwhelmed with the generosity.  All those animation friends spending precious time to mark the clebration and such a wonderful shower of messages.  I really was very touched by the kindness. It was worth hanging on for 91 years to receive such a gem.
I shall treasure it.   THANK YOU EVERYBODY!

Everybody pulled out all the stops to honour a master cartoonist and inspiration to us all. I'll post a sketch a day for the next couple months- comments are welcome.
