Tyrus Wong, “The Chinese artist who drew Disney’s Bambi”

South China Morning Post looks at the life and work of Tyrus Wong, the uncredited, lead illustrator on Bambi (1942) and so much more. “Wong did not receive credit for his work on the 1942 Disney film even thoughhe was the lead production illustrator. He remained unrecognised for his efforts, but artistic expression nonetheless remained a key part of his life. In spite of this, he continued to create and served as a set designer or storyboard artist on films such as Rebel Without a Cause (1955), Around the World in 80 Days (1956) and The Wild Bunch (1969).”
