|Still from The Soldier’s Tale|
R.O. Blechman’s Ink Tank archive will have a home within the D.B. Dowd Modern Graphic History Library at Washington University.
The Ink Tank archive includes the production materials for more than 350 commercials as well as the films Simple Gifts and The Soldier’s Tale, based on the Stravinsky composition, plus short animations for NBC, CBS and other clients.
There is an unfinished film version of Candide. But beyond the films and media, there are many, many drawings, animation cels, background paintings, storyboards and other production materials, as well as business materials and documents.
