DVD CARTOON COVER ART



Yesterday, in honor of Halloween, I posted a piece of art that I did for my pal, Steve Banes, the Art Director at East West DVD. I thought that I would post a few of the actual pieces that I have done for East West DVD covers. Among other various titles, East West DVD produces cartoon compilations of material that is public domain. It is a lot of fun to do, as I have been able to illustrate such classic characters as POPEYE, THE THREE STOOGES, HECKLE & JECKLE, BOZO THE CLOWN, CASPER THE FRIENDLY GHOST and more. Here's the cover art for a collection of COLONEL BLEEP cartoons, WOODY WOODPECKER & FRIENDS (including LITTLE AUDREY and BABY HUEY) and the detail of the cartoon art for a live-action Christmas-themed ABBOTT & COSTELLO TV SHOW. The ABBOTT & COSTELLO was fun because we decided to use the 1960s Hanna-Barbera TV cartoon versions of Bud and Lou. Notice that I added the moustache on Bud to make him appear as he did on their 1950s TV show. I'll post more DVD cartoon cover art again soon.

You know, public domain cover art usually comes in two varieties: scanned-in images from either stills or promotional art or really, really bad off-model drawings.

This work is actually pretty frelling good, on-model work. Keep it up!

Nice stuff! Some of the best public-domain cover art I've ever seen.
