Cartoon Brew presents my book!


So my amazingly talented and hilarious outspoken grandpa has published his first book! Not only has he helped me immensely over the years artistically and as a mentor, but he’s always been an inspiration and is one of animation’s visual effects legends. Here’s a quick little blurb about it from the Cartoon Brew blog

“Flyin’ Chunks And Other Things To Duck” by Dorse Lanpher

Dorse Lanpher

Dorse A. Lanpher is one of a handful of artists who can say he worked on Disney classics like Sleeping Beauty and 101 Dalmatians as well as contemporary features like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Tarzan. Lanpher recently self-published a memoir called Flyin’ Chunks and Other Things to Duck: Memoirs of a Life Spent Doodling for Dollars. His 48-year-career as an effects animator also included an extended stint with Don Bluth on projects like The Secret of NIMH, Dragon’s Lair and An American Tail, which is why Don Bluth penned the book’s foreword. The book sells for a modest $18 on Amazon, and judging from the preview pages on that website, it’s filled with a lifetime’s worth of important and untold stories about working in feature animation.
