#D42 – Walt Disney Studio – Gladstone – Donald Duck, 1989. This Full-figure original (working) drawing of Donald from ‘The Amazon Queen’ measures 6.75′ X 4.50′ and is matted. The Drawing is rendered in graphite pencil from the Donald Duck Adventures #20 (Gladstone comic). William Van Horn always enjoyed comics as a child, especially ‘Mickey Mouse’ as drawn by Floyd Gottfredson. He studied at the California College of Arts, after which he worked in the animation field for years. He left this field in 1977 and started to write children’s books. It was not until 1985, when Van Horn created his first comic: ‘Nervous Rex’, about a small dinosaur. He contacted the American Disney publisher Gladstone in 1985. Van Horn had heard about the publisher’s plans to create new Duck stories, and he was interested. Later on, William Van Horn moved from Gladstone to the Danish Egmont Comic Creation and has created over 800 ‘Duck’ pages since. He introduced new characters to the Disney universe (Baron Itzy Bitzy, Rumpus McFowl). Van Horn has written nearly all of his own stories and he uses a very personal style in both his scenarios and artwork. In his stories, Van Horn focused on the absurdity of the situation, instead of the actual story line. This gives his comics a distinguished style, which is more slapstick than other Disney stories. Compared to other artists, the artwork in his stories is more vivid, or ‘loosey-goosey’, as he likes to call it.
