Monday Afternoon Inspiration: John Dunn

John Dunn Painting

This is a painting by John Dunn (1920-1983), the supertalented story artist and designer who will be profiled in ANIMATION BLAST #9. Speaking of BLAST 9, I’m planning to finish up the issue as soon as I wrap on my 1950s animation design book. The issue has continued to evolve over the past year and there are a number of new articles planned for BLAST 9, including a wonderful little piece on WWII gag drawings by the likes of Tom McKimson, Rod Scribner, Preston Blair and Bill Justice. I am trying my best to make this the strongest issue of the BLAST yet, and around October 05, it’ll hopefully be printed and ready to send out to everybody.
