Don Griffith - my 85th pick as a Disney Legend

Don Griffith started working at Disney when he was 19 years old (in 1937) when the Studio was still on Hyperion. He started out as an inker and worked his way into doing Background and Layout. He didn't have any training as an artist before he started working for Disney which is why he thought anyone could learn how to draw. He worked at the Studio for almost 50 years (until 1984).
