Espeluzland

' Axtor Disney was an American cartoonist, illustrator, musician, and magician. Elder brother of Walter E. and Roy O. Disney, he along with his brothers founded The Walt Disney Company in 1923. After many heated and sometimes violent discussions, mostly due to his very peculiar and strange work methods, and especially because of his children illustrations which can only be described as 'queer', he was fired from his own company and expelled from the core of the Disney family itself, situation that made him change his very own last name from Disney to "Majesto" (paying tribute to a bum from his neighborhood). His brothers made sure to wipe each and every piece of work that could credit his existence, burning all his sketches and his macabre collection of deformed animals. Secluded in the darkness and mentally supressed, Axtor decides to give birth to a new company named "Espeluzland" in order to compete with the overly friendly and fantastic world of his new enemies, the Disney brothers. The failure was resounding. Deprived of any trace of honor, and overwhelmed by debt and the constant harassment by the right-minded organizations of the time, he withdrew himself again into his ancient and now abandoned castle, to which he referred to as his great unfulfilled dream "Espeluzland", where he dwelt until his mysterious disappearance. Very few traces remain of his artistic legacy, and all that prevails is the legend. Not many years ago it was known that there was a secret organization whose only purpose was to find the missing work of Axtor Majesto, to preserve it and show it to the world through their website. It is because of this organization that part of the work of this deeply perturbed but brilliant artist reaches our hands, and yet it is nothing but a small part of the vast and unknown universe that resided in sick mind.
