How’d you like a genuine De Gardo in your home, signed by the artist? This guy has.
This is one of the background drawings in “Kiss Me Cat,” released by Warner Bros. in 1953. The background artist is Phil De Guard, who decided to use a pen name (a brush name?) as an inside joke. I can’t read the first name on the painting.
Here are a few other backgrounds.
Layouts are by Maurice Noble.
