Victor Haboush - pick number 78 as a Disney Legend

Layout Artist Victor Haboush is my 78th pick as a Disney Legend. Much of the information here can be found on the Cartoon Brew site.

He attended Art Center College of Design on the G.I. Bill where he studied extensively with Lorser Feitelson.

On the recommendation of his Art Center classmate and Disney Legend Eyvind Earle, he was hired at Disney in 1952 to help finish layout on Peter Pan. His first association with Disney came earlier, when he helped Earle draw this Golden Book adaptation of Peter Pan. He built up an impressive list of credits at the studio including assistant art direction on Melody and Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom, and layout on Lady and the Tramp, Sleeping Beauty and 101 Dalmatians.

Vic was one of Tom Oreb’s closest colleagues during the 1950s and they worked together as a team, especially in Disney’s TV commercial unit.

 When Oreb left Disney to work at John Sutherland Productions, Vic followed. They both soon returned to Disney to finish Sleeping Beauty, where Vic played a key role in designing the “Thorn Forest” sequence.

The video below is a non-Disney commercial directed by Haboush.
