Mitch O'Connell holiday TV montage

Dig this Mitch O'Connell illustration tribute to "animagic" TV specials from the Arthur Rankin / Jules Bass team, like Mad Monster Party and Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer.  Like just about any subject matter in the world these days, sure enuff there's a Rankin/Bass website with the background scoop on these classics.   Also the TV Party site has some interesting reading about the making of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer - learn all kinds of interesting facts like why Yukon Cornelius is always licking his pick, and just what's wrong with the Girl Doll on the Island Of Misfit Toys.  Artist Mitch O'Connell is based in Chicago, and displays a fascination for all things kitsch, with influences from atomic age comics to big-eyed Keane-style paintings.  Check out his site for more neat illos and also a peak into the O'Connell home decor.
