    Animation by Preston Blair Illustration (MGM/Warren Foster, 1949). Preston Blair was an animator for Walt Disney Studios, MGM, and Hanna-Barbera. He also did numerous top-selling instructional books on art and animation for Walter T. Foster Publishing. His first book, titled Animation, featured his character illustrations from several studios on the cover. He later revised the cover art with non-studio character for the second edition, presumably for legal reasons. This is a Preston Blair (1908 - 1995) graphite and gouache illustration that measures 11.5" x 15" on 14.5" x 19" Strathmore paper. This artwork is very close in appearance to the finished published art. Originally from the Estate of Preston Blair. The piece shows minor handling wear; otherwise condition is Very Good.

    More Information: EDIT: "Warren Foster" changed to "Walter T. Foster"
