ABOUT The Magic Feather's artist, Don Ducky WIlliams:
Don Williams, fondly known as Don “Ducky” Williams, has been a character artist for the Walt Disney Company for more than 30 years, and is especially known for his wonderful renderings of that irascible Donald Duck. Although he paints all the characters, Donald Duck is his favorite, probably because of his temperament.
Drawing Disney characters is more than a job; to Ducky, it’s a way of life. Like many people, he has been infatuated with Disney characters since he was a child. In fact, Ducky wrote his first letter to Walt Disney when he was just 10 years old and has always wanted to be a Disney artist or animator. “The Disney characters are more than characters - they are living, breathing personalities, and I enjoy capturing those personalities in my artwork,” says Williams. “The characters have to come to life on the page, and the only way to do that is to know the characters and their films inside out.”
Although Williams artwork is reminiscent of traditional animation, he stylized his characters by adding shape and dimension. An observant viewer will notice that Don’s character have dimension, as opposed to flat color seen in animation. This subtle technique adds a sense of shape, life and personality to each painting, capturing the mood and spirit of the film as well as the characters. He is well known for painting the Fab Five character: Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Pluto, as well as the many characters from classic Animated Feature films, such as Snow White, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Bambi, and many more. Don’s work doesn’t stop at characters, he is passionate about meticulously hand-painting the backgrounds of those scenes, bringing those classic Disney moments fully to life.
