- At Buzzco, they are preparing to send a lot of archival art to the MoMA. I’ve been trying to race through a bunch of it to scan it so that I can present it on this Splog. A folder of drawings by Len Glasser had to be organized so that I could send it out. There are certainly some odd bits in there.
Let’s start with a potpourri of pictures.
This Background stands alone. It’s painted on a cel.
Len Glasser had a unique style – perfect in its time.
Here are a group of drawings that work together. They’re some layouts Len Glasser did for a spot for NBC; it has something to do with the weather. The floating guy makes it look like it may be part of the story of the sun, the wind and the man with a coat. The sun and wind compete to see who can get the guy to remove his coat first. (Spoiler alert: the sun wins.)
This seems to be the layout for the whole piece.
What follows are the layouts for the animation, though I’m not sure what’s going on.
They’re drawings, at this point, for the sake of drawings.
Let’s end on a picture of Santa. . .
. . . an original picture of Santa that only Len Glasser could draw.
