Wilma van den Bosch

Wilma van den Bosch (b. 1956, Welland, Canada) has created Disney comics, cartoons and illustrations for 33 years, working at the Donald Duck Weekly editorial office in the Netherlands. She also made Disney artwork for puzzles, boardgames, toys and fashion for companies such as Jumbo International, Vadobag and Wings Sportswear. In 2002 she was awarded the medal Youth Album of the Year for Prinses Aster (Princess Spark), a sci-fi comic published a year earlier in installments in Donald Duck Weekly. Wilma once spent a week locked up in a cellar in Paris with fellow Disney artists from all over Europe, to follow the inspiring Winnie-the-Pooh artclass by  American Disney artists Raymond (Skip) Morgan and Denise Shimabukuro.In 2009 the editorial office of the Finnish Aku Ankka (Donald Duck), invited Wilma and her colleague artists Mau Heymans, Bas Heymans and Michel Nadorp for a signing tour in Finland. To thank the office, she made the 13-page Donald Duck ice hockey story the Big Slip-Up, for the Finnish glossy AKU. She has worked ten years for the foundation Draw My Story, giving disabled children a boost by making the stories the children told into comic strips. Wilma didn’t start her career as an artist, though, but as a writer. She didn’t know anyone in the comics industry and had no idea how comics were made when she started writing The Shadowcatcher, a 45-page comic book script with tiny scribbles next to the dialogue. She drew and coloured three of its pages. The story was sent to eight publishers and rejected. Ed van Schuijlenburg, art director of Donald Duck, liked the little scribbles better than the finished pages, so he invited Wilma to write Disney comics for the weekly. At home she wrote scripts for a year, while studying how to draw the comics as well. Her drawings were considered promising and she was invited to work at the office as an artist.
