THAT DAMNED KURTZMAN, II


I was wondering where this was---finally found my second Harvey Kurtzman LITTLE ANNIE FANNY sketch. Again, the organic composition on this drawing floors me.

Harvey was amazing. I was a student at SVA his last year teaching. He brought in folders of Annie Fannie development work and let me paw through and shoot 35mm slides (i'm old-back then it was 35mm slides).

i love his work but, what really got me was his work ethic and the diligent effort he put into getting something done right. it was so eye opening to see process of a guy like Kurtzman.

Did you know Harvey?

John,
thanks for the post!
Geez, no, I never met Harvey, but I have friends who also attended his SVA class (I'm also old).
Harvey is probably in my top 3 favorite cartoonists of all time.
That bastard.
