tender game

13 06 2015

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.

STERNchen 2

DCF 1.0

in the fifties and sixties the german magazine STERN contained an eight page smaller magazine STERNchen for the younger readers. of course I collected them all, already in these early years I was interested in the illustrations, created by the best in german illustration ( most of them at the beginning of their career ), like LORIOT and BUSCH, LANGE and KOHLSAAT. many years later I destroyed the precious collectors magazines, cutting out the illustrations. they were less heavy during my numerous moves. here now the first part of the collection, in my opinion some amazing pieces of illustration-art in their stylistic variety.
