Yuki – Star of the Sea

The long awaited Don Bluth Fable, Yuki – Star of the Sea is now available on Amazon! Don Bluth’s first children’s book where he set out to write, draw and paint the whole story himself! Don Bluth painted fully traditional using gouche paint. Besides some touch up, everything was done with physical media. Published by our new publishing company 2d Press, LLC.

It is really refreshing to see brand new Don Bluth art as I am sure all of you can agree. Production on his next children’s book is already underway and is set to release next year.

Don Bluth Studios:

“Don Bluth set out to create his first children’s book. To draw, write and paint the whole story himself. After trying digital coloring, Don just didn’t think it looked right. So he decided to do it fully traditional using gouche paint.

Yuki, star of the sea, is a delightful story of a little whale who loves adventure. Who always gets in trouble. Against mama Orca’s warnings, he swims too close to the shore where he is captured and taken into a world of entertainment. There he does tricks in a tank in Mexico. Hundreds of people buy tickets to see this fabulous little whale. Hollywood cashes in on Yuki’s popularity and contracts him to play a part in a film about a whale who is homesick and longs to go home. So well does Yuki play the part that it makes him homesick too. Ah, but Hollywood won’t let him go. Yuki has become a great star. He is worth millions.

Children from all over the world write letters to the director of the film begging him to return Yuki to the sea. Finally the director caves in. The whale is put in a plane and flown back to Iceland’s cold bay and there he is welcomed into the arms of his family – and friends.”

Lavalle Lee has been creating animated cartoons online since 1999/2000 for his website flashcartoons.org. Many cartoons on the site have gained viral video status reaching millions of viewers online. In 2009, Lavalle started learning hand drawn animation from Don Bluth in his animation classes, as well as attending his Masterclasses in Arizona. He has also personally studied animation and visual effects from Veteran Disney animators in Orlando, FL.

Lavalle is widely known in the animation industry as the creator of the TraditionalAnimation.com website. After seeing that most animation sites were about all types of animation, not any specific to classical hand drawn animation, Lavalle knew Traditional Animation needed to be represented online. TraditionalAnimation.com has become the leading website and social media account for all things 2D. The website served as inspiration for “The Traditional Animation Show” in which Lavalle was both producer and host.

His partnership with Don Bluth began when he championed the Dragon's Lair Indiegogo campaign as lead project manager, editor, voice actor and in-betweener. The campaign reached $730,000 dollars to produce a 7-minute pitch video. In 2017, Lavalle brought the idea of creating a school to Don Bluth, and Don Bluth University was born. After a decade of learning from Don Bluth and working together on multiple pitches and business ventures, Lavalle accepted the position as Vice President of Don Bluth's new company Don Bluth Studios.
