CBS on animator Tim Walker

A few months ago I posted about my friend, animator James “Tim” Walker who was diagnosed with Lateral Parkinsons Disease on his right side. This past week, our local L.A. CBS channel (KCBS) ran this nice piece on Walker (embed below) about his illness and his sketchbook, Drawings From The Left.

    Tim is truly one of the most inspiring people in the history of animation. How many artist do you know that would draw with their opposite hand and have it good enough to put out a book? Tim is living proof that you can accomplish anything that life throws at you.

    God bless Tim Walker…

    What an incredibly inspirational story. I worked with Tim at WB for many years. He’s a great guy and so deserved of this attention. Tim, if you read this — congratulations! When does Book II come out?? :-)

    Tim gave ‘Drawings from the Left Side’ to me through my good friend Mark after they spent an evening together over dinner. Being an artist as well, Mark wanted to share Tim’s remarkable talent.
    I was so excited when I received the book and enjoyed looking at all the wonderful cartoons and reading Tim’s story. However,this video has so impressed me in an even greater way to take whatever is getting me down, turn it around and fight to success! You are a great inspiration Tim. Thank you!! And thank you for the book. I’m honored to have it in my library.
