Journey Back To Oz

This is a B.G. I pulled out of the Filmation dumpster back in the 70’s after production ended on the ‘Journey Back To Oz’ film. It was common practice to dump all the art work from a show after the show was in the can, so a few of us would just jump in and do a little “dumpster diving” to see what we could take home for souveniers. The back grounds were done in the style of Eyvind Earle who was the stylist for Disney on ‘Sleeping Beauty’. If you aren’t familiar with his work I suggest you do a search and take a look. He was an amazing designer and painter and it’s well worth your time.
