Here's some screenshots of one my favorite background artists, Fred Brunish. He worked at Walter Lantz Studios from 1946 until 1952. He passed away on June 25, 1952 from cirrhosis of the liver at age 49. His bright, colorful paintings for Dick Lundy's cartoons are welcome contrast compared to Shamus Culhane's cartoons. Many of which contain flat colors and even colored paper backgrounds (though I think they make his cartoons look very unique.) In addition to painting great cartoon backgrounds Fred was also a California landscape painter. The last two pics are of a couple of his landscape paintings. I wish I had better quality pics to share, when that Woody set comes out be sure that I'll be doing another post of his great backgrounds.
