Gene Deitch. More people should.
Gene was a preeminent artist and cartoonist in the mid twentieth century and he is still going strong at 92. Incredible talent with a kool unique style all his own.
I think I note a little Ben Shahn influence in his work. Both graphically and chromatically.
Worked on Popeye and Tom and Jerry and lots of other great stuff.
I think I posted the Munro video before, it is one of his most critically acclaimed shorts.
