Ferdinand Horvath’s designs are hands down my favorite from some of Disney’s early works. Horvath started working at Disney in 1934 and was a jack of many trades there from doing character designs, developing story gags for the “Silly Symphonies”, and 3D model building.
His work is playful and full of imagination. His designs focus mainly on the use of whimsical shapes and unique takes on subject matters. His inventiveness was, in my opinion, only paralleled by fellow artists of the time, Albert Hurter.
