This biography from the Archives of AskART:
James Spalding Bodrero was born in Belgium on July 6, 1900. Bodrero was named for his uncle, artist James M. Spalding. He began drawing and painting as a child and remained self-taught. As a teenager he was working as a freelance artist in NYC, submitting work to national magazines and illustrating for authors. In 1925 he settled in Pasadena and in 1938 went to work in the art department at Disney Studios as a story director and character designer. There he created Dumbo the elephant, the ostrich who danced in "Fantasia" and José Carioca, the parrot. After leaving Disney in 1946, he painted several murals in local restaurants. In 1949 he moved to San Francisco where he remained, except for sojourns to Spain, until his death on Feb. 6, 1980. He was author-illustrator of the children’s book, Bomba (Random House, 1939) and Long Ride to Granada (Reynal & Co., 1965). Member: Cartoonist Guild (founder). Exh: Stendahl Gallery (LA), 1933; Greer Gallery (LA), 1937; Montecito Country Club, 1940.
