Bud Blake's style and characters look deceptively simple.
But he can obviously draw really well. Try to take those simply designed characters and draw them on a down shot, walking! I always hated drawing down shots in cartoons-and they are impossible to animate. Bud makes at least the drawing part look easy.
He draws great perspective and composition and would make a killer layout artist if he wasn't a successful cartoon illustrator and comic strip artist. What a beautiful drawing above!
