Tex Avery Goodies

22 Mar

I’m a huge fan of Tex Avery’s MGM shorts. My favorite cartoon is “The Shooting of Dan Magoo.” I thought I’d share some model sheets and layouts. Just give ’em a click for larger pics.

    Wow! Thanks for looking. I’m a huge fan of yours. I posted some more over on drawingboard.org but not the Irv Spence ones. I was actually going to scan some more this week. I’ll post those ones tomorrow. I’ll plug the DVD too while I’m at it.

    The model sheets are mostly from John Canmaker’s book Tex Avery:MGM Years. It’s out of print now but it pops up on ebay or Half.com once in awhile. If you see it get it! It’s a beautiful book. It can get a little pricey. I’ve also got another out of print book by Patrick Brion called Tex Avery Les Dessins. It’s french, but it’s a book of layouts, model sheets and animation drawings. It’s great because every image is oversized. There’s even a 6 page layout from the Car of Tomorrow in the middle. He aslo published a Tom and Jerry guide to all the theatrical shorts with some layouts in it. I’ll keep ’em coming until I run out.
