20 years ago when I first started working at Disney, Pocahontas was the first character I ever officially worked on. Even though it was a LONG time ago, I still find myself doodling her when my mind wanders. Sometimes a year may pass before she shows up on my paper. But, I still feel like that kid walking through the doors of Disney 20 years later. Hello again, Pocahontas. It’s been a while. :)
