In the world of cartoons, no crime is too dastardly to solve and no adventure too ambitious too embark upon, and that’s especially true when it comes to Scooby Doo!
Late last year, Birmingham-based Castle Fine Art expanded its popular Hanna-Barbera collection of fine art prints, unmasking the Creeper with Scooby-Doo and the gang, alongside chasing the American Dream in Manhattan with Jerry Mouse, and playing the piano for the Emperor of Austria with Tom Cat.
Castle Fine Art offers a growing portfolio of limited edition prints, original artworks and sculptures, and items in their Hanna-Barbera collection are selected from one of America’s most prestigious archives of animation art.
Their series of rare limited edition graphics includes behind-the-scenes artworks and unforgettable scenes from the Hanna-Barbera studio’s award-winning television shows and animated short films. Handwritten character notes, model sheets, stills and title cards have been faithfully recreated by a specialist team using silkscreen, lithograph and giclée printing techniques.
To preserve the stunning colours, an acid-free paper has been selected, with the artworks displayed in a range of presentations, including diptychs and triptychs. Framed and painted by hand, each of the pieces is signed by a legendary animation artist, including William Hanna, Joseph Barbera and Bob Singer. Spanning the Golden Age of Animation of the 1930s and 40s to the explosion of television in the 1960s, this exciting release is the perfect addition for any cartoon fan.
To find out more about the collection, get in touch or contact your local gallery. You can also see the artworks up-close in a YouTube video, which reveals the clips the latest artworks are taken from, along with extracts from interviews with the artists Bob Singer and Barbara Krueger
