the art of art
When it came to finding the perfect artist to not only create a drawing of Art Carney that hasn't been done before, but to capture his essence, his personality and at the same time, to associate this image exclusively with The Carney Awards. There was only one artist on the list... Dave Woodman. Art said that of all the drawings created of him over the years, this was one his favorites.
Everyone Dave Woodman meets has some of his work. Mr. Woodman, with creativity and often a touch of humor, gives his Hollywood Insider nods to pop icons and imagery.
As a young boy, Dave Woodman had the belief that one day he'd be an animator for Disney. The Artist grew up to not only be a Disney animator, but also receive an Academy Award nomination and win a Golden Globe Award for his work. Animation projects he helped create include: The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Prince and the Pauper (Mickey Mouse), The Tigger Movie, An American Tail, Cats Don't Dance, The Pagemaster, Christmas Vacation (Chevy Chase), She-Ra, 101 Dalmations (TV series), Harlem Shuffle (Rolling Stones video), Opposites Attract (Paula Abdul video), and Honey I Shrunk the Kids (movie titles).
At age 17, Woodman's longtime idol, Lucille Ball, purchased some of his early caricature portraits of herself for her personal collection. A member of The Society of Illustrators, his illustration work has received accolades from the greats in his field and some of the publications he has contributed to include: The New Yorker, People, Chicago, Chicago Tribune, Modern Bride, Tennis and The Hartford Courant.
Miscellaneous accomplishments are Phyllis Diller's caricature logo, The Laugh Factory logo and the first sculptures ever created of Matt Groening's hilarious family, The Simpsons. And now added to his portfolio...The Carney Awards logo.
