I&PG- 044, Mindy Johnson, Author of “Ink & Paint: The Women of Walt Disney’s Animation”

June 24, 2017

History is a puzzle told through many stories- there’s a handful of rock stars that shine brighter than the rest- even fewer of those rock stars are women.  Mindy Johnson, writer, historian, and the author of the upcoming book, “Ink & Paint: The Women of Walt Disney’s Animation”, is about to share the voices of hundreds of forgotten female artists who worked at the Walt Disney Studios from the earliest days when Lillian first met Walt to the hire of Bianca Majolie to help in moving away from gag-driven shorts to longer stories with heart to the introduction of CAPS and digital animation with The Rescuers Down Under.  We discuss why it’s important to know that although there are still glass ceilings to break in higher creative roles, we have a solid foundation to build upon and firecracker role models to look up to.
