Creative Inspiration: R.O. Blechman

R.O. Blechman is an illustrator, cartoonist, author and animator. Although his name might not be instantly recognizable to many, his signature wiggly line style certainly is, having graced countless magazines, books, ads and TV commercials over the past 50 years.

Below is an animated holiday interstitial for CBS he created. It makes me really nostalgic. It aired often on the network for years in the early 70's when I was a little kid growing up watching all those Christmas specials.

I recall seeing it air once or twice in the early 80's during the holidays after the CBS Late Late Movie and before the network would conclude it's broadcast day with the national anthem.

Man, I'm old.

But the warm feeling you get from watching this is timeless...
