Cartoon Portraits





My favorite portraits are the ones where the characters look like parasites or symbiotic partners - the kind who pick fleas out of your teeth.

Walt almost has some 'tude there in the first picture

You're welcome.

I found those top two pics from the Life Magazine collection online of Walt and Roy.

By the way, John,

Is that the Mikey Mouse doll Bob Designed Walt is holding?

Niki said...

Lol. Bad-ass Walt. Another Chuck

Donald Duck has a great product line, in pic 2: soft drinks, ice cream, frozen food

I wonder if the frozen food line had any chicken meals...!

"Eat all your Donald Duck, son! Or else you're not getting any Donald Duck ice cream"

Nice!

I wonder how many animators or Cartoonists hate having their characters plague their photos and how many enjoy them.

Guess it depends if the characters/jobs were fun or a living nightmare.

Dr. Seuss wasn't a animator. He was a children's book author. When his characters were animated, it was by other people. Such as Chuck Jones on the Grinch.

A holoa! I got jumped! How exciting!

Weirdo said...

What if their creations decided to jump their creators and mug them?

There's a Don Bluth example, that served as the cover of the sole, self-published book on the man.

Is there none of Clampett with 2d Characters? I think I have seen one with Beany and Cecil at least.

Donald Duck licensed food I saw the most of, and it still may exist, was Orange Juice, sometimes frozen, but mostly canned. It was practically Grapefruit Juice, which I would not mind so much now, but in Kindergarten, it was Nasty if you were expecting Orange Juice.

Look at the filename on that first portrait of Walt!

Don Bluth

Whit said...

There's another Bluth example, featuring Don with many more of his characters. It's not the one M R Darbyshire put up.

To go along with the Mel Blanc portrait:

Daws Butler and Don Messick.

And here's a page with many voice actors matched to their characters. Includes Daws Butler.

Here's one of Krazy Kat and Ignatz commenting disapprovingly on George Herriman.
