tender game

JOHN and FAITH HUBLEY’S – THE TENDER GAME – was produced in 1958. when I saw this animated masterpiece in the early 70s in an animation exhibit in zurich, the abstract style of the animation and backgrounds inspired my own work for all my years in artschool. all the background artwork is by JOHN HUBLEY, the animation by BOBE CANNON, EMERY HAWKINS, ED SMITH and JACK SCHNERK, ELLA FITZGERALD sings the beautiful song ‘TENDERLY’, together with THE OSCAR PETERSON TRIO. I am sure, all the artwork still exists, but I never had a chance to see the originals. below are some of the pan-bg’s, recreated from a very good quality print I found recently.
