Desigual released this Christmas video two weeks ago. But getting more views is the video released last week featuring the singer of the song, Barcelona model-actress-singer-writer Raquel San Nicolás, who records as Niccó:

Tyrus Wong was one of the most celebrated Chinese-American artists of the 20th century, but he passed much of his career unknown to the general public. Photo credit: Sara Jane Boyers/New York Times

The most important thing I did Monday was spend an hour on the phone with my good friend Kim Wong, whose father, Los Angeles artist Tyrus Wong, died last Friday. He was 106.

Kim and I went to Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. The first time I saw her I recognized a kindred spirit: She was wearing an embroidered Mexican dress, and so was I. People didn’t wear ethnic clothing then, the mid 1960s. But the school was in downtown Los Angeles, close to a Mexican district, full of great clothes that the general public hadn’t discovered yet.

The Los Angeles Times phoned the morning Tyrus Wong died. The newspaper was going to interview Tyrus for a profile the reporter, Elaine Woo, was working on. Kim had to inform Woo that Tyrus had slipped away earlier that day. The L.A. Times story is here.

Kim told me Tyrus, who had a great sense of humour, would have been “amused” that he made the front page of the New York Times. He probably couldn’t imagine making the Times of India.

Tyrus got recognition later in life for his instrumental work shaping the look of the 1942 animated Disney movie Bambi. Using watercolour painting techniques from the Sung Dynasty landscape paintings, his brush strokes suggested a forest without showing every branch or leaf. Here are a few of his brilliant paintings for Bambi, which was watched in awe and sadness by generations of children, some of whom became the best animators in the business.

After leaving Disney, Tyrus went to work for Warner Brothers. This is his painting for a scene in 1969 Warner Bros. film The Wild Bunch (1969).

Disney honoured Tyrus as a Disney Legend in 2001, and put on a retrospective of his art three years ago at the Disney Museum.  Just this year, a documentary, Tyrus, was released, making its  debut in Vancouver last November:

In his 90s, Tyrus was also known as the Kite Man of Santa Monica Beach. He made elaborate kites of paper & bamboo, sometimes attaching dozens to a single string more than 100 feet long. An amazing man who led an amazing life.tyrus-with-kites-santa-monica-beach-annie-wells-l-a-times
