40's and 50's illustration goldmine!!!!
Friday, February 23, 2007
I recently have been getting into 40's and 50's animation and art and have been looking at guys like jim flora, mary blair(disney), and recently saw dumbo and alice in wonderland. I stumbled upon this guys blog and flickr account to find that he worked as an inhouse story board artist at an ad agency and met an older guy that had amassed a huge collection of newspaper and magazine clippings of classic illustration. When he passed away his sister let this guy keep all the illustration files. He has scanned a huge chunk of them at hi res and keeps scanning new ones daily. There are ton's of great guys like Jim Flora, Al Parker, JC Leyendecker, Bob Mcginnis and tons more
on the flickr account you can click the illustraion, then click on the all sizes magnifying glass icon and click on original size for the hi res version!
