Disney Pic of the Week: Artisans at Work

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Back in 2011, I had the pleasure of photographing the famed Disney character artist, Don “Ducky” Williams, during the “Everything’s Just Ducky!” 15th Annversary AllEars.net Event in Epcot’s Odyssey restaurant. He talked for nearly an hour all the while producing sketch portraits of Disney characters. It was a joy to watch a person who clearly loved his job. So much so that he keeps showing up years after his “retirement”.

Deb will be here tomorrow to share her Artisan photo which will really blow you away.
