JIM FLORA INSPIRATION

Art by Jim Flora is being posted by guest blogger Irwin Chusid this week on Leif Peng’s Today’s Inspiration blog. Chusid, author/editor (with Barbara Economon) of The Mischievous Art of Jim Flora is showcasing rarely seen 1950s commercial art by Flora (1914-1998). Flora’s only connection to animation was as an inspiration to animators, especially Gene Dietch – who returned the favor by adapting Flora’s childrens book, The Fabulous Fireworks Family as a Terrytoon (released in 1959). More Flora can be viewed at JimFlora.com and at JimFloraArt.com.
