The late, great ANTONY PETERS

Tony Peters was a dear friend and one of the most talented artists to work for RANKIN/BASS PRODUCTIONS (Known as VIDEOCRAFT INTERNATIONAL when he was there).  Tony designed their landmark TV Special RANKIN/BASS' RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER and everything that came before it!  I especially like Tony's lettering style, which was used in the titles for THE NEW ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO and THE TALES OF THE WIZARD OF OZ.  You can also see it in the CHRISTMAS SAFETY SEALS (posted above).  Tony started in the earliest days of VIDEOCRAFT INTERNATIONAL and he told me that his wife Adrian many times would play cards with Arthur and Jules.   Tony was a great friend!  He is missed. 

Tomorrow night!

Mad Monster Party - Making Of A Classic Part 1


Art by my pal STEVE "The Dude" RUDE for the MARVEL 1966 CARTOON VHS Box sets!  Why haven't they done a DVD or BLU RAY set with this same art???   Steve's art will be featured in our CREATURE FEATURES RANKIN/BASS GROUP ART show at CREATURE FEATURES December 6th, 2014.  We will hang his YUKON CORNELIUS Art that he did for my MAKING OF RUDOLPH book, which is featured on the last page.
