A (Belated) Happy 90th to R. O. Blechman

R. O. (Bob) Blechman, a master of animation and illustration, celebrated his 90th birthday on October 1, 2020. Whether on animation cels or as ink on paper Blechmans lines are instantly recognizable (and much imitated).

Steven Heller, at Print, joins in the celebration of his friend.

From 2009 is Jeet Heer interviewing Blechman for The Comics Journal.


Is it too early for Christmas? Blechman has been associated with the holiday throughout his career.

Wishing R. O. Blechman a very happy birthday!
