    Description

    Destination Earth Pan Layout Drawings Group of 6 (John Sutherland, 1956). This is a collection of six pan layout drawings from Destination Earth, an industrial cartoon produced by the American Petroleum Institute to promote the benefits of oil and capitalism. They are by Tom Oreb (1924 - 2009) a pioneer in the stylized, mid-century modern movement in animation through the 1940s, '50s and '60s. In this cartoon, Martians visit Earth in search of petroleum and these layouts depict incredibly "hep" versions of Earth and Mars. One of them (the farm scene) can be seen on page fifty two of the book Cartoon Modern by Amid Amidi. They are rendered in colored pencil, measure 10.5" tall, and range in length from 37" to 7". These are fabulous layouts from a cartoon that typified the 1950s style. There are folds, creases, small tears, and tape marks; otherwise, condition is Good. From the Vic Haboush Archives.
