Signed and numbered b/w 12x10 drawing of Popeye, rescuing his girl Olive Oyl from a speeding train as only he can, in a 20x18 grey matte and black frame. This drawing was made to look like an animation cel. Waldman was head animator at Fleischer Studios and worked on the Popeye animated cartoons.
Original art signed "Myron Waldman". B/w, 11¾x9¾ image in 20x18 grey matte and black frame. No. 114 in a 250-piece series. King Features imprint in gold in lower left corner. Waldman drew this art on a clear sheet of plastic and added a separate background behind the drawing. He apparently took pains to make this art look like an animation cel, although it doesn't appear to have been used in any Popeye cartoons. Waldman (1908-2006, born in Brooklyn, New York) was an animator on over 110 cartoons, most of them shorts for Fleischer Studios and its successor, Famous Studios. Waldman was employed as an inker at Fleischer Studios in 1930 after graduating from the Pratt Institute in Utica, New York. He was head animator by 1934. Waldman worked on many of Fleischer Studio's most famous characters, including Betty Boop, Popeye, Raggedy Ann and the animated adaptations of Superman and Gulliver's Travels, as well as two Oscar nominated shorts, Educated Fish (1937) and Hunky and Spunky (1938). He left Famous Studios, where he worked on Casper the Friendly Ghost, in 1958 and joined Hal Seeger Produtions in 1958, where he worked until retiring in 1968. He also published a syndicated comic strip, Happy the Humbug, as well as an illustrated novel, Eve: A Pictorial Love Story (1943) that was a precursor for today's graphic novels. Not framed in Gallery of History style. Frame is lightly scuffed. Art is slightly rippled. Otherwise in fine condition.
