Tom Oreb. Disney Character Stylist.

February 18, 2011

Tom Oreb, was another talented Disney employee from the 1950s’. The designer of shorts like

Tex Avery’s SYMPHONY IN SLANG and Ward Kimball’s Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom,

(which you can see here) as well as the character stylist of SLEEPING BEAUTY whom he based

on the slender and beautiful star Audrey Hepburn.

It’s a shame there isn’t more of his coloured imagery on the internet, but his black and white work

certainly shows how well he can create interesting and expressive characters. I love his owl creations.
