- Description (Brief)
This original artwork, for pages 16 and 17, was used for the book Bullwinkle, written by David Corwyn with illustrations by Hawley Pratt and Harry Garo. It was published by Little Golden Press, in 1962.
Hawley Pratt (1911-1999) was an illustrator, animator and film director. He began his career as an artist for Walt Disney Studios in 1933 and after the Disney animators’ strike in 1941, Pratt joined Warner Bros. Cartoons. While at Warner Bros., Pratt worked with renowned animator Isadore “Friz” Freleng on Freleng's Oscar-winning cartoons including Tweety Pie, Speedy Gonzalez and Birds Anonymous. Pratt is often credited as the creator of the animated Pink Panther character portrait. He later went on to direct or co-direct episodes of The Pink Panther cartoons for television.
Harry Garo (1923-1994) worked as an illustrator in 1926 for American Stories, the first American magazine devoted totally to Science Fiction. Known for its sensational covers, this series helped define the genre known as “pulp fiction,” named for the poor, irregular quality of the paper used for printing. In the early 1960s Garo worked on a few Golden Books with Hawley Pratt, including Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle the Hero and Bullwinkle and the Fireman. Garo also illustrated a series of books known as the VIP series, educational books for the juvenile reader exploring different occupations that deal with various modes of technology and transportation such as farmers, railroad engineers and bus drivers. He even illustrated a book for teaching students how to read a map.
