Bambi Art & Artists

Some years ago I had the chance to ask a few key artists from the Bambi crew to sign my copy of Frank & Ollie's book. Quite the title page!
The inscription on top of the page was written by Frank Thomas. Donnie Dunagan is the voice of Bambi, and Peter Behn did Thumper. Then there is Mel Shaw as well as Tyrus Wong.

I am not sure who created this amazing artwork for the romantic sequence in the film (I bring You a Song).  All I know is that such a sentimental treatment can go down the drain really fast and become kitsch. I am sure that there are people who think that's exactly what it is...but to me these visuals look stunning.
