5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Stuff, 8 Sep 2009
This review is from: Whimsical Work of David Weidman (Hardcover)
I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I chanced upon a copy of David Weidman's Whimsical Works a few months ago. His style is beautifully original, graphic and surprisingly contemporary, considering most of the prints are from the 50s and 60s. The text is brief but interesting and most of the book is shamelessly devoted to his artwork. A true genius in graphic design with a beautiful folky and naive quality and delicious colours. If you like this type of art you will fall in love with this book - I cannot praise it highly enough.

This review is from: Whimsical Work of David Weidman (Hardcover)
Length:: 0:50 Mins

I have no idea who's David Weldman but the cover really caught my eye. I love the colours and how they overlay on one another, and the textural feel.

Mr. Weidman is an artist who used to work in animation studios back in the 1950s, before he turned to serigraphs (stencil) and silkscreen printing.

Collected in this 216-page hardcover is a collection of his wonderful art. The work he did for animation includes character designs and animation backgrounds. The characters are very cartoon like, looks animated and have a nice style to them. And the animation backgrounds are very beautiful as well, coloured in similar style.

The silk-screen prints featured in this book are gorgeous. The subject, the colour schemes and textures all combine to create vibrant pieces of art. They look really great and I imagine they will look terrific as huge paintings on walls. Some of the designs are looks really complicated, especially those with lots of overlays. It's hard to find anyone who makes art like this anymore.

There's also a short biography and interview on Mr Weidman, which is a nice read into the past.

It's a very beautiful book. Definitely a keeper if you love silk-screen art.

loved the layering within these images. Some are very much of the 70's style but very inspiring for contemporary designers. Pleased with the excellent condition and delivery.Thanks.

Great title, yes very whimsical work. When I open this book I enter another world of whimsical Weidman happiness. His shapes, texture and colour all sing beautifully together in the compositions. No matter how many times I look, there will always be something new to inspire me in these works. Weidman is a genius of an artist!

This review is from: Whimsical Work of David Weidman (Hardcover)
I bought this book after coming across a David Weidman print in a shop. He will be familiar to many for his work for the Hanna Barbera cartoon films but his work is much wider-ranging than that. His use of colour is particularly delightful and evocative of its time. Weidman's biography is interesting as well. The book seems to have been published by Weidman's own company which explains the care that has clearly been taken in its production.
