Degas in the traffic department

In 1938, working as a traffic boy at Disney, Virgil "Vip" Partch was inspired by Edgar Degas ... This drawing is a considerable ways from the Partch style that was used for a thousand cartoons in a thousand magazines...but it gives you an idea about where Virp was in his early twenties. (To be a traffic boy at Disney in the Hyperion days was to be an artist aspiring to get into the animation department. More on Partch later in the week.)
