Animator, CalArts trustee and alumnus Dave Bossert (Film/Video BFA 83) joins Disney Supervising Animator and director Eric Goldberg for a book signing Sunday in Anaheim for “An Animator’s Gallery: Eric Goldberg Draws the Disney Characters.”
Bossert, of Stevenson Ranch, is the creative director and head of Classic Projects for Walt Disney Animation Studios at The Walt Disney Co. He also serves as president of the West Ranch Town Council.
The Art Deco-themed art book features text by Bossert and Goldberg’s illustrations of Walt Disney characters in a style reminiscent of caricatures from the famed walls of New York’s Sardi’s and Los Angeles’ The Brown Derby. More than 200 stylized images of characters from Disney movies such as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves,” “Alice in Wonderland” and “Frozen” are featured in the book, plus a special section with characters from “Pixar” movies such as “Toy Story” and “Cars.”
An Animator’s Gallery also includes a foreword by animator John Lasseter (Film/Video BFA 79).
The book signing takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center, as part of the 2015 D23 Expo, a three-day event dubbed as “the largest Disney fan event in the world.”
