FLINTSTONES COLORING BOOK COVER ART!

I was going through my files tonight, and found this original art piece that I inked of PEBBLES, BAMM-BAMM and DINO. As you can see below...the detail area of PEBBLES and DINO was used as the cover image for a recent FLINTSTONES coloring and activity book.

WALT DISNEY CARTOON FUN!

Here's DONALD IN MATHMAGIC LAND (1959 Dell Comics)...and the PINOCCHIO CARD GAME (Whitman 1968). Great stuff!

FROM MY COLLECTION...

What a terrific cover design! This is 1962's TOM and JERRY FUNHOUSE from Gold Key Comics. I really wish today's graphic "designers" who work with classic cartoon product, would look at stuff like this for inspiration. Some do, but most have no genuine interest...and it shows in their work. Most graphic "designers" today have no basic design skills or sense.
