TAIS Presents Disney Animator Peter Emslie

* Wednesday, January 26, 2000. Toronto, Canada.

TAIS, the Toronto Animated Image Society, will present "Creating Appealing

Cartoon Characters" with Peter Emslie. In the evening's presentation, the

long-time Disney animator will explain his personal theory on what makes

for good cartoon character design, by referring to videotape and sketching

on the spot to illustrate various points. Since 1979, Emslie has spent much

of his time drawing for the Walt Disney Company. On staff for 10 years and

now as a regular freelancer, Emslie continues to illustrate for various

Disney character products. His clients include Disney Publishing and The

Disney Stores. Emslie has also taught Character Design at Sheridan College

and continues to teach occasionally at Studio M. The event will take place

at 8 pm at City Hall, 100 Queen St. West, Committee Room #4. Admission is

free for TAIS members, everyone else $4. Memberships will be available at

the door. For more information contact Patrick Jenkins at E-mail:
