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 Soldierâ€™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 yearâ€™s end.
