tell-tale heart 1

7 02 2015

it has been a while since I last posted a recreated background. besides that I realized I had never shown any artwork from THE TELL-TALE HEART. this animated short based on the EDGAR ALLAN POE short story was produced in 1953 by UPA and directed by TED PARMELEE, narrated by JAMES MASON. PAUL JULIAN, master designer and painter, was responsible for all the backgrounds in this film, as well as the color-styling. the film was nominated for an academy award but lost to disney’s TOOT, WHISTLE, PLUNK AND BOOM, nevertheless it is a true masterpiece. below now the first recreated pan from the film.

accidentally I found out about this filipino painter, ROMEO V.TABUENA. for me his paintings represent the best the philippines, the life of the simple people in the countryside, the feeling of nature there with carabaos and houses on stilts. he was born in 1921 in iloilo city and learned his craft in new york and paris. for the past two decades he resides in mexico with his norwegian wife, his paintings are very much in demand from collectors and museums.

unfortunately I never met CORNY COLE, I know though some of his work, especially what he did for RAGGEDY ANN AND ANDY. RICHARD WILLIAMS worked very often with CORNY, he described to me his crazy style, doing most of his sketches with a simple ballpoint pen and never using any reference. DICK described him as a genius. the illustrations below might have been for a personal project, CORNY had in mind, or it was one of those collaborations with DICK WILLIAMS, anyway, DICK gave me these xeroxes about 30 years ago.

the illustrations below are from the 1955 published novel TANZPAUSE (dance break), written by VICKY BAUM and illustrated by WILHELM M.BUSCH. I am posting all 12 illustrations in a bigger size, so you can see the incredible quality of BUSCH’s artworks, all done in pencil. he creates such an atmosphere in these simple line drawings, captures moments in a way a photograph could never do. BUSCH never used any photographic reference, but he usually studied and sketched situations of his daily life, especially in the circus or during his lectures at the art academy. when you take a closer look, you can see the rough basic composition lines. the final drawing looks so effortless written down. whenever I look at his work I am speechless and in awe.
