COAT OF SMILES, parody art of iconic symbols. A duck's hat, a mouse's ears and a smiling yellow button. Three iconic things brought together in one artwork.
The PAPERWALKER Journal is the personal weblog of DUCKLAND creator and award-winning character designer Florian Satzinger – who worked on characters such as Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Looney Tunes (Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, Silvester etc.), Pinky And The Brain, A.J.Hogg and Scooby-Doo, for studios such as Warner Bros., Disney, ReelFX and The Zanuck Company – in which he shares bits and pieces of his character design work, processes, visual development, inspirations and reference materials of current, past and future projects.

PLEASE NOTE, the displayed parody artworks of classical cartoon characters are not copies but distinct satiric imitations, by exaggerating and transforming the original characters and their related indica (see 'Coat of Smiles') in a way that creates new originals and new meanings, different from the intentions of the originals.

«The complexity of Donald Duck's nature in one image.»

I had to sketch this because it's been rattling around in my brain for a couple of days now. No time for colours and clean lines, just the rough drawing.
