Dreamworks was founded in 1994 as a live-action film and animation studio after Katzenberg resigned from the Walt Disney Company. The trio was so powerful culturally, that the news of the founding made the front page of The New York Times, illustrated by this group portrait. It was Hirschfeld’s first front page drawing for the paper, and he did it on deadline as a car waited out front of his home to whisk into to the paper’s offices. In the 1990s, Dreamworks released numerous iconic 90s films including Saving Private Ryan, American Beauty, Antz, and The Prince of Egypt. Soon thereafter, Dreamworks gave us everyone’s favorite swamp ogre, Shrek, in 2001.
