With nearly 60 years as an animation artist, Comic-Con special guest Willie Ito has done it all. He worked at Disney on Lady and the Tramp's spaghetti scene with mentor Iwao Takamoto and on One Froggy Evening and What's Opera Doc at Warner Bros' famed Termite Terrace under Chuck Jones' direction. He went on to The Beany and Cecil Show with Bob Clampett and then Hanna Barbera for the beginnings of The Flintstones, The Jetsons, and many other cartoons. Ito has great stories and experiences to share. After HB he went to Disney Consumer Products and spearheaded implementation of collectibles and licensed products worldwide. He has also designed comic books, comic strips, coloring books, and more. Join animation expert Leslie Combemale of ArtInsights for a spotlight on Willie's life, including the part of his childhood spent in a Japanese internment camp that inspired his most recent venture, a series of children's picture books based on the experience.
