Animation and kites

Tyrus Wong was born in 1910 in China, in the city of Taishan. After some time his family moved to the United States, where Tyrus worked as animator, artist, calligrapher and expert on ceramics. The most famous work of Tyrus as an artist began work on the famous cartoon of Disney “Bambi” (1942). In addition, Wong drew and made the storyboard for dozens of other animated films by Disney and Warner Brothers, and later drew postcards for the company, Hallmark Cards. Since late 1960-ies Tyrus Wong left animation and started to produce kites.
