Recently, I've been looking at a lot of old TV cartoon character paintings that you see on 1960s merchandise like Little Golden Books, Whitman coloring book covers, frame tray puzzles, etc. I think it's the best era of TV cartoon merchandise. Here's SHERMAN from Jay Ward's PEABODY'S IMPROBABLE HISTORY. I did this 6" x 9" piece with markers and colored pencils on coquille board. Click image for a larger view.

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day! Here's something I did for fun. It's an early design for HANNA-BARBERA's RICOCHET RABBIT that I re-created with colored pencils, brush, pen & ink on a textured blue paper. When this design was originally done in 1963, the working title may have been HAIRTRIGGER HARE. This 6 3/4" x 11 3/4" RICOCHET RABBIT original art is available to own.

Here's the cover to Hanna-Barbera's AUGIE DOGGIE and DOGGIE DADDY style guide that I helped produce at Warner Bros. Consumer Products. I inked all of the character art for the guide, which was penciled by Mike Fontanelli. I'm also posting one of the AUGIE DOGGIE and DOGGIE DADDY poses from the style guide. I was fortunate to get this color piece signed by the voice of DOGGIE DADDY, DOUG YOUNG! YOUNG is also known to HANNA-BARBERA fans as the voice of YIPPEE (from the YIPPEE, YAPPEE and YAHOOEY cartoons) and DING-A-LING (from the HOKEY WOLF cartoons). Click on each image for a larger view!

It's been a while since I last posted any LOONEY TUNES art. Here's a few pieces that I inked for Warner Bros. Consumer Products. The first is a BUGS BUNNY comic book cover re-creation for the Warner Bros. 75th Anniversary art program. The ELMER FUDD and SYLVESTER JR. art are LOONEY TUNES style guide supplements. I inked all of these with brush, pen & ink. The ELMER FUDD and SYLVESTER JR. poses are from character model sheets. I was happy to see nice flat colors on all of this art!
