Hans, I have just transcribed my Art Babbitt lecture for my new book, and he mentions that JOHN AND MARSHA commercial, which is now actually on YouTube! Is it possible for me to get a high quality scan of the four images on the bottom? I can then contact someone about getting publication rights…
Just go to “Snowdrift John and Marsha” on YouTube to see the commercial…and the animation is absolutely gorgeous!
