Secrets of line and colour


Above: art by the recently deceased Heinz Edelmann, best known as the designer of the hyperchromatic animated film Yellow Submarine. Here however he appears reduced to black line, which proves no hardship in the hands of a clever craftsman.

Below: before his passing he left a clue in the hands of fellow practitioner Mr Grillo, and so at last I can see what it is that I’ve been doing wrong all these years. How obvious!

ADDED: Stephen Kroninger has some Yellow Submarine comics stashed away.
ALSO: Hans Bacher has some beautiful development art for Yellow Submarine by Mr Edelmann.
