Happy Independence Day, Finland! / Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää, Suomi!
The glorious work of Tyrus Wong is unparalleled. It was his lush pastels that served as the driving force behind Bambi, where he was the lead artist on the film. Prior to Wong’s contributions, the logistics of managing the detailed nuance of a forest setting (millions of leaves!) was posing a problem, but Wong’s gorgeous, inventive minimalist approach was the perfect solution and provides the film its unique style and warm, textured feel.
If I had not taken you in you would not be here now to hate me.
We are not gods. We’re born, we live, we die just as humans do.
