Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Thursday, May 9, 2024
I got this hardcover from an online seller. It's an account of some of the women who worked as illustrators for Disney in its early years - at a time when the story and art designs were all done by men. At first, the only women allowed were those working in the ink and paint department, tracing and filling in each of the thousands of cels of artwork - and even then, some were responsible for considerable innovation: I learned that one of those women developed (and, wisely, patented) the grease pencil. But the book describes several women who were hired into the mostly-male art department, where they had to battle the built-in sexism and racism only to find, too often, that they didn't receive credit for their contributions to some of the greatest Disney films.

Often frustrating or downright infuriating, but also quite intriguing - and with lots of interesting bits about the behind-the-scenes work that led to some of the most iconic Disney films.
