I've been spending a lot of time capturing screenshots of the backgrounds from various Famous cartoons. I'll be doing a series of posts highlighting the different background artists that worked at Famous Studios during the mid to late 40s and early 50s. I'm very fond of a lot of the shorts Famous put out during that period and aside from some great animation here and there, I love the backgrounds.
Tom Ford is one of the artists that really caught my eye right away, particularly the backgrounds in "Teacher's Pest" and "Helter Swelter". Please excuse the quality of some of the pics as those are from public domain DVDs and I think we all know the quality is usually not that great.
