|Tyrus Wong, A Kiting Legend courtesy of the Drachen Foundation website|
In 2007, the National Watercolor Society presented Tyrus Wong with the prestigious "Life Achievement Award". I was accepted in the exhibit, won an award and attended the awards luncheon where they honored Mr Wong. They exhibited some of his wonderful kites on the ceiling of the hotel where the luncheon was held. It was so nice to see this very, multi-talented man and hear him speak. He started his career with the Walt Disney Studios in their animation department then moved to Warner Brothers where he remained for the next twenty-six years as a production illustrator.
A film about Tyrus Wong, "Brushstrokes in Hollywood" is currently in post production in LA, Ca.
