About the artist:

Caught up in the make-believe world of animation, the creativity and whimsy of the characters, and the early execution of the cartoon art all were factors in directing the professional path chosen by David Willardson. After graduating from Los Angeles Art Center, David entered the world of entertainment art.

Willardsons’ journey continued in the fields of animation as he could create images that portrayed the essence of a story. Disney needed an artist that understood and was passionate about Disney characters, an artist that could uphold the integrity of Disney’s original drawings and someone who could capture the personalities and emotions of the Disney characters. Their choice fell on David Willardson.

Willardson was commissioned to paint the major movie posters for Disney Animation over a period of fifteen years. A small sample would include Bambi, Cinderella, Snow White, Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and The Lion King.

While painting the characters in the traditional way, Willardson also developed an energetic, colorful, stylized, dynamic, graphic painting style that to the fullest extent captures the personality and emotions of the Disney characters!
