In 1939, Walt Disney began production on the animated feature Bambi (1942) and enlisted artist Tyrus Wong to inspire the influential backgrounds used in the film. His minimalist style, specifically in his background concepts, revolutionized the animation art form and continues to be used today. Join visual story artist Patrick O’Keefe, whose work includes the upcoming Sony Pictures Animation film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, as you learn about photo reference, graphic reduction, and simplification to design a digital background of your own.
