Do You Have McKimson Bros. Art For a Book?













Hi folks



I wrote the forward to a book about Bob, Tom and Chuck McKimson.
Does anybody have any original art from their cartoons, storyboards, comics, backgrounds, coloring books etc that you could scan to be printed in the book?

You would get an acknowledgment and the world of cartoon fans would owe you everlastingly.

I have a coloring book page with Bugs by Bob. I'll try scanning it in a bit.

Emily: Apparently you can't read, either. John wasn't asking for your art!

I do not have any McKimson brothers art - not a collector, and too young to have a collection!

Today something exciting happens! I would guess something on Adult Swim? I'll be watching!

Emily said...

BlakeJ: I got a lot goin' for me, huh.

awesome book idea for some unsung heroes of cartoons, i want one! and if it sells well can you help get a good bob clampett book going please? (not to mention, when's that spumco book coming out?)(i think you should do a new version of PB's "Cartoon Animation" too while you're at it, structured a little more like your online classes)

Did I really just almost see a John K Simpsons intro?
Almost, meaning I just caught the last second or two.
I'll have to look for it online later.
Congrats on all the work you've been doing lately.

I don't have that but just in case you ever want it I have a Huckleberry Hound Giant Story Book Illustrated by Frank McSavage with stories like "Operation Spud" and "The Noisy Little Indian" and others from 1961 if you're interested.

John, I have an original comic that only a handful of people have seen. If it is something that would be enjoyed by others, I'd be more than happy to send it. It has generally received very positive responses. The only issue is that there is some nudity (butt crack). Please email me if you are interested. I would be very honored.
