These are a couple caricatures of Bob McIntosh painted by genius director/designer John Hubley, while they were serving in the First Motion Picture Unit in the early-1940s. There’s also an incredible Hubley drawing of McIntosh that will be printed in the book. Prior to joining UPA in 1952, McIntosh had worked at Disney (where he painted multiplane backgrounds directly on glass for BAMBI), the First Motion Picture Unit during WWII, and at Paul J. Fennell’s TV commercial studio Cartoon Films Ltd. Bob is happily still with us today, at age 89, and still quite active as a fine art painter.
