R.O. Blechman’s Ink Tank Fills an Archive

R.O. Blechman was featured in this morning’s edition of The Daily Heller.

Blechman was the creative and entrepreneurial force behind The Ink Tank, a highly innovative animation studio in New York City from 1977 to 2004. Steven Heller talks with Douglas Dowd about the Ink Tank archive finding a home within the D.B. Dowd Modern Graphic History Library at Washington University.

The Ink Tank archive is a goldmine of production materials for more than 350 commercials as well as the films Simple Gifts and The Soldier’s Tale, based on the Stravinsky composition, plus short animations for NBC, CBS and other clients.

Processing and cataloguing is expected to be done by year’s end.
