Looking at backgrounds and art work, I forgot to blog one man who if I forgot completely, I would be absolutely disgusted with myself.
For those who don’t know who Maurice Noble is,
“Maurice Noble (May 1, 1911 – May 18, 2001) was an American animation background artist and layout designer whose contributions to the industry spanned more than 60 years. He was a long-time associate of animation director Chuck Jones, most notably at Warner Bros. in the 1950s. His work contributed to such cartoon classics as Duck Dodgers in the 24½th Century, What’s Opera, Doc?, and the Road Runner series.”
Noble was a man with an incredible skill and eye for composition, light, colour and line. Even though I do tend to go on about people such as Chuck Jones an awful lot, I do understand also that without people like Noble and Mel Blanc, he wouldn’t be what he is known as today. I have definitely found a new understanding and admiration for those teams that work together to create amazing beautiful pieces.
