An Animator's Gallery: Eric Goldberg Draws the Disney Characters 
by David A. Bossert (Author), Eric Goldberg (Illustrator)

Book Description
This whimsical, deluxe Art Deco-themed art book showcases Walt Disney characters in a style reminiscent of caricatures from the famed walls of Sardi's and The Brown Derby. Disney Supervising Animator and Director Eric Goldberg drew a little more than 200 stylized images in a collection that first debuted as a display within the Roy E. Disney Animation Building in Burbank, California. Now with An Animator's Gallery, the show comes right to you. Fans of all ages, and from all over, can enjoy Eric's playful portraits, starting with Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse through characters from Frozen and Big Hero 6. Bonus sections will even feature some of the most beloved characters from Pixar.
