I was just going through my files and came across this piece. It's FELIX FLANKIN from the 1967 Rankin/Bass "animagic" feature film, MAD MONSTER PARTY. The film starred the voice talents of BORIS KARLOFF, PHYLLIS DILLER and ALAN SWIFT. I created the FELIX art with markers, colored pencils and brush & ink on coquille board. Click on FELIX to enlarge. Rankin/Bass produced the classic holiday TV specials RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, FROSTY THE SNOWMAN, THE YEAR WITHOUT A SANTA CLAUS, SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN, LITTLE DRUMMER BOY and many more!
