Today is Fred Moore's birthday! (Very close to Frank Thomas'!)
He would have been 101 years old today.

The story goes that one of Fred Moore's friends couldn't make it in an interview with Walt for a job, so Fred seized the opportunity and went in his place (without any formal art training!).

But more and more, he is being recognized for his own style and own creations
