style 13.1

27 01 2020

the next posts will show you examples of different styles or looks of animated shorts and feature films of the past. later I want to explain how these looks were developed, what inspired the artists. this is as well the subject of a new book I am writing – about the development of style in animation.

following pans from WB shorts – bad old putty tat, back alley uproar and bugs bunny rides again. both cartoon backgrounds painted by PAUL JULIAN

the next masterpieces were painted by john hubley for tender game

and 2 pan backgrounds from fleischer’s superman shorts
