Tyrus Wong, a 102-year-old artist’s work influenced the visual direction of Bambi in 1941.

An exhibition at the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco will be held to celebrate Wong’s work.

According to the Disney Museum site, the drawings felt different from what is commonly known for Disney animation and this is what caught Walt Disney’s eye.

Making Handmade Art, Literally

Animations

Alex Solis, a talented artist from Chicago, had an idea to incorporate his hands into his imaginative illustrations.

This creative idea incorporates something as basic as an unfinished illustration and brings it to life with interactive actions.

These creations are a form of live art that requires Solis’ imagination and creativity to first draw the illustrations and then to complete the artwork with the use of his hands.

There are different types of Bento Boxes that are elaborately and creatively arranged. The first style is the “kyaraben”, which are usually decorated to look like popular characters from Japanese cartoons, comic books or video games.

Another type of type of Bento Box is the “oekakiben”” which means the “picture bento”. This style is decorated to look like people, animals, buildings, etc.
