Ub Iwerks: March 24, 1901

MARCH 24, 2006
Love the name! …and that was way before Steve Jobs and Apple Computer started adding "i" in front of everything! But seriously, we view Iwerks as the magical devil responsible for the initial Disney style way back in 1920's Kansas City. He was Employee #1. Iwerks's DNA is in Mickey Mouse. He was an insanely good animator who is legendary today for his speed and draftsmanship. His influence continues strongly today as artists are inspired by early, hand-drawn forms of animation that seem fresh, innocent, and irreverent.
