"Dom is still painting from his Ramona, CA home where he does watercolors. He is thrilled to see so much interest in his work and amazed at your collection. " This was exciting news! Soon after, I was corresponding with Dom himself and his lovely wife, Maxine. At my request, Dom kindly wrote a detailed account of his career and today I'm honoured to share it with you. Just before graduation from High School in Waltham, MA, where I was born in 1919, the Boston chamber of commerce ran a contest for seniors to advertise Art Week in Boston; whereupon, I won a one year scholarship to the “Child Walker School of Design” in Boston.

In 1954 I was voted in as a member of the elite “Society of Illustrators” in New York where I still retain my membership. When World War II started, I joined the Marines and was assigned to aerial photo unit VMD-254. Alan lee art.

Richard Solomon Artists Representative

To Douglas, the most appealing aspect of making art was storytelling, and with this in mind, he chose to attend the Rhode Island School of Design, earning his BFA in Illustration in 1974, also studying sculpture, painting, and printmaking. Smith moved to Boston shortly after graduation, and started to build a freelance career, working for local magazines and newspapers such as the Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, Inc.

Visions of the Jinn: A Visual History of Arabian Nights. Among 2011’s best sort-of-children’s books was a magnificent volume culling the best illustrations from 130 years of Brothers Grimm fairy tales — a visual history of some of the most memorable storytelling ever published.

Visions of the Jinn: A Visual History of Arabian Nights

Visions of the Jinn: Illustrators of the Arabian Nights is a remarkable tome that applies a similar lens to another infinitely influential piece of timeless storytelling, whose impact spans from the poetry of Goethe and Rilke to the contemporary fiction of Borges and Proust to the visuals and narratives of video games. In the subsequent decades, other artists took a similarly hazy approach to exoticism. It wasn’t until the 1839-1841 publication of The Thousand and One Nights, translated by ethnographer Edward William Lane, who had spent several years in Egypt himself, that the stories began to reflect the Arab world with respectable accuracy. The first unabashedly imaginative edition of the Victorian age came in 1865. HT The Times Literary Supplement, The Guardian. Twitter. Twitter. Gallery — Eric Hanson Illustration.

Tyrus Wong, Disney Bambi Artist Finally Getting Deserved Recognition

Watercolor on paper. Nearly one year after he died at the age of 106, Chinese-American artist Tyrus Wong is finally gaining wide recognition for his work at Disney and Warner Brothers. Wong was responsible for much of the imagery we associate with iconic films like Bambi, though due to prejudices against Chinese immigrants, his contributions were diminished for many years. Pamela Tom's documentary Tyrus explores Wong's life and career in the context of his times. As Wong's life unfolds, from immigrating to the United States at a young age to his role as an illustrator during Disney's Golden Age, Tom explores how Wong both shattered racist views, but was still imprisoned by limitations during his career.

Wong's storied history ranges from being separated from his mother and sister while entering the United States as a 9-year-old boy in 1919, due to the Chinese Exclusion Act to gaining recognition in junior high for his artistic talent. Related Articles: Twitter. Twitter.

Before Walt Disney, there was Lotte Reiniger – the story of the world's first animated feature. The oldest surviving animated feature was not made by Walt Disney, but by a German puppeteer named Lotte Reiniger who escaped Nazi persecution to move to London and make adverts for the British Post Office.

Before Walt Disney, there was Lotte Reiniger – the story of the world's first animated feature

Her film, The Adventures of Prince Achmed (1926), was a creative and technical masterstroke that would have a huge influence on the generation of animators that followed, including those working in the United States. But with the rise of Disney and the dominance US film studios, Reiniger’s name has largely disappeared from sight. But in recent years, thanks to enthusiasts sharing her work on social media and the availability of her work online, her part in the development of animated films is becoming more widely known. As part of that rising recognition, Prince Achmed will be showing in 16mm at London’s Cinema Museum on October 25. At as young as six, Reiniger became fascinated with the craft of making silhouette cutouts. Reiniger’s generation was the first to grow up with cinema. Twitter.
