"The stylists influenced the whole appearance of each picture, yet their work was never seen by the public. They were part of a large group of artists who inspired, created, planned, and suggested, but did not make the actual drawings and paintings for the film. The design, color, mood, locales, characters, and fantasy worlds all started in the inspirational sketches of this select group"

If it's a form of visual storytelling, we have a stylus in it.
