He helped to bring us Disney's Robin Hood, The Jungle Book, and 101 Dalmations. He was the first African American animator to work at Disney, and one of the few people to have worked under the direct supervision of Walt Disney himself. Even so, Floyd Norman is an almost painfully modest man, so modest that he was very reluctant to accept the title of Guest of Honor. Anthrocon, therefore, is pleased to welcome Floyd in 2008 as our first-ever "Guest of OK!"

Mark Evanier (one of last year's GoHs (sic)) has a blog at http://www.newsfromme.com/ and mentions Floyd at http://www.newsfromme.com/archives/2008_01_21.html#014681 and that Floyd has his own blog at http://jimhillmedia.com/blogs/floyd_norman/default.aspx (56 entries, lately about one a month). I don't know whether I'll try to get through them all, or avoid risking spoilers for his AC08 appearance and see what he has to say then...
