The Art of Eyvind Earle

  While I was gathering information for a essay of mine (it's on animation!), I discovered Eyvind Earle. What a name! I was so entranced by his artwork that I just had to share. He is certainly another artist to add to my list of favorites!
  Mr. Earle uses a technique called serigraphy. According to Animazing Gallery, it was first recognized as a fine art medium in the late 1930s. Serigraphy utilizes a color stencil printing process. It's really a fascinating style of art that uses the layering of colors with ink, oil, watercolor, ect..  Check out more at and peak into Animazing Gallery!
His colors are so bold and bright! I love that! I find his work to be very interesting, mainly because I have never seen anything like his art. This is why he is recognized today. Well, I hope this might span a
added technique, a influence in your own style, or at least a level of respect for Eyvind Earle.

Recognize this scene? It's a background Earle did for Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty.  He became an animator with Disney.  More his story on website above.

Here's how he did it.
