CLASSIC PRESTON BLAIR SWIPE

Blair-2.jpg

A while back we reported on various art swipes from the Preston Blair animation book, found on things like lottery tickets, and in places like restaurants and high schools. Brew reader Devlin Thompson recently found this vintage example:

I was filing away a bunch of random old magazines, catalogs, and the like that had piled up in the last couple of years when I rediscovered this 1956 Dremel pattern book that, like so many others before and since, steals liberally from Mr. Blair’s animation book. Just one more thing to throw on the pile of Blair swipes, but I thought you might find it of interest.
