About the Author
Christopher Finch was the author of many books about art in America, including Chuck Close: Work, Chuck Close: Life, Norman Rockwell’s America, and Jim Henson: The Works.
At 88 years old, Disney legend Floyd Norman (animator, storyman, and beloved “troublemaker”) is the picture of perseverance in the animation industry. As the first African American animator at Disney, arriving in 1956, Floyd worked on classics like Sleeping Beauty, One Hundred and One Dalmatians, Mary Poppins, and The Jungle Book. On the latter title, Floyd was handpicked by Walt Disney to join the story team. Impressed? This is just the start of his ongoing 67 years in animation—as told in his documentary, Floyd Norman: An Animated Life.
