She was did excellent work on the lead character Jessica Rabbit, one of the most challenging characters on the movie to draw - let alone to animate. Russel Hall, who designed Jessica's final look, set a high bar, but Caron met the challenge and produced many beautiful shots.
It was on Roger Rabbit that she met her husband Andrew Painter, with whom she had two children. Andrew, like me, worked as an assistant animator on the film, doing his level best to keep up with the prodigious output of lead animator Simon Wells, who was legendary for producing huge volumes of work for his assistants.
Later, Caron worked at many boutique London animation houses like Hibbert Ralph, doing adverts and commercials for TV. But I will always remember her as the animator who brought Jessica to life.
