Canemaker’s J.P. Miller – 1

- John Canemaker contributed a two part article on J.P. Miller to Cartoons, the International Journal of Animation published by ASIFA Int’l. The two part article appeared in the Winter 2006 and Spring 2007 issues.

John Parr Miller was a designer who worked at the Disney studio from 1934 to 1942 as part of Joe Grant’s elite Character Model Department. After his service in WWII, he became a children’s book designer and author remaining in that field for the remainder of his life.

J.P. Miller’s career at Disney’s is not something we often hear about, and I think the information in John’s extended article is so valuable that it has to get out there even further and be shared more openly. Consequently, with John’s permission, I’m posting both parts.

This is part 1:

    We tend to blame our family, friends, spouses, neighbors, pets, co-workers, our boss, our kids, and so on and so on, just about everybody for why our lives isn’t working the way they are supposed to.
    Sometimes I realize that I may not like a game, but I should pick
    it up for a friend who would love it. Apart from kids, adults too like
    to play a game or two and polish their gaming skills.
