Details

Walt Disney always envisioned that the studios bearing his name would remain relevant by consistently taking creative risks and doing the unexpected. Heading into the 1940s, he crafted an entirely new division of the studio called the Character Model Department, which focused solely on the details of character development. This showcases six of these early pioneers: Eduardo Sola Franco, Johnny Walbridge, Jack Miller, Campbell Grant, James Bodero, and Martin Provensen.

This features artwork developed by them for the Disney shorts from the 1930s, including many unproduced projects, as well as for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, and some early work for later features such as Alice in Wonderland and Peter Pan.

Introducing new biographical material about the artists and including largely unpublished artwork from the depths of the Walt Disney Archives and the Disney Animation Research Library, this volume offers a window into the most inspiring work created by the best Disney artists during the studio's early golden age.

They Drew as They Pleased is a series of volumes spanning the decades between the 1930s and 1990s.This volume from famed Disney historian Didier Ghez features uncommon and never-before-seen images of their influential work behind the scenes.

With vivid descriptions and passages from the artists' journals, this visually rich collection offers a rare view of the Disney artists whose work gave rise to many classic Disney characters, and who ultimately rewrote the future of character creation in animation.
