The Art of Film

This one is a real headscratcher. It’s a poster from 1972 called “The Art of Film” yet it has nothing to do with film. Rather it’s a random collection of sketches by animation artists and illustrators, mostly from the New York scene.

It includes doodles by John Hubley and a painting by Fred Mogubgub:
The Art of Film

Drawings by Rowland B. Wilson, George Cannata Jr. and “Gyo”, who I assume is children’s book illustrator Gyo Fujikawa:
The Art of Film

A pair of lips drawn by Bill Littlejohn with the words “Animation is Beautiful” and a drawing by West Coast illustrator Ed Renfro of a man on a bench giving the piece sign:
The Art of Film

Drawings by Seymour Chwast, Dolores Cannata, Gordon Bellamy, “Sculenberg”, and Murakami-Wolf:
The Art of Film

Other artists who contributed include Jimmy Murakami, Chris Ishii, B. Simpson, Kim & Gifford, Bill Melendez, Lee Savage, Henry Syverson, Ed Smith, Irene Trivas, and Henry Fernandes.
