J P Miller

During the 1940s until the 1970s, MILLER (1913-2001) illustrated many Golden Book publications, including some by Margaret Wise Brown and Edith Kunhardt. Miller worked at the Walt Disney Studio's exclusive Character Modeling Department before becoming a children's book artist, producing characters for Disney's first feature film, Snow White, including the dwarf Dopey. He then created the character of Geppetto, the toymaker, for Pinocchio.
