In the 1930s, cartoons had their own distinctive aesthetic—one composed of rubber hose limbs and pie-cut eyes. During this time, Walt Disney was also creating now-iconic characters, such as Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto, and though all of them contained some of these traditional features, they also had unique, human traits. In Gallery 3, see examples of these characters in their earliest appearances, and then join us for a workshop that focuses on how to use elements such as proportion, silhouette, and shape language in order to design a successful anthropomorphic character that harkens back to the distinctive 1930s art style.
