Off-Ramp animation expert Charles Solomon remembers his friend Pres Romanillos, a well-regarded and well-loved animator who brought life to Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mulan, and many other films. He died Saturday of leukemia at the age of 47.

Romanillos had skill, an eye, and wit, as you can see in his drawing (above) of Charles as a samurai.
