Tex Avery Layouts and Backgrounds

28 Jul

Here’s some pictures of the original pencil drawings along with the finished backgrounds from Tex Avery’s Blitz Wolf and Red Hot Riding Hood. Though I love the stylized and cartoony backgrounds in my earlier posts on Montealegre my favorites are the ones from the MGM’s late 1930’s Harman-Ising shorts all the way through to Dick Lundy’s mid 50’s Barney Bear shorts.
