I made a small model of my favourite Edward Gorey character, “The Doubtful Guest”. I made him in the summer, but I realize winter is a much better time to show him off, because of his fabulous scarf.
Undoubtedly one of my favourite children’s book characters.
December 5th 1901: Disney born
On this day in 1901, Walt Disney was born in Chicago, Illinois. Disney went on to found the Walt Disney Company in 1923, which helped to establish the American animation industry. The company was very successful, creating many beloved characters whose popularity endures, such as Mickey Mouse. Disney later expanded his media empire to theme parks, establishing Disneyland in 1955. Disney died from lung cancer in 1966, but his legacy continues in the continued success and cultural prevalence of the Disney company.
