Julian had such an inate sense of design. The solid colors offer such strength. Very daring work for a Freleng film.

Paul Julian reminds of Frank Lloyd Wright in a certain way. Having seen a bunch of FLW creations, including three in Japan. For all his genius, I think FLW was a master of scale above all else. As sharp as Julian’s palette is, I think he has that same elusive feel of scale. Whether urban or rural backgrounds, his perspectives are deadly good.

The crowning aspect of Paul Julian’s genius was knowing what to leave out of the picture and when to stop painting.
The CG artists of today are being forced to lard on as much detail as possible, resulting in obesity of the frame.

Thanks for removing all the pesky characters from in front of these wonderful BGs, Hans!
