TUTTO SU AL HUBBARD, di Alberto Becattini

Blog_haha_cover_hubbard

Come promesso, Alberto Becattini ci ha inviato una *incredibile* sequela di informazioni su uno dei disegnatori più amati, statistica-
mente parlando, dai visitors di questo blog.

Invece di ripartire questo elenco stracompleto di titoli e dati in più di un post, per una volta lo lascio scorrere di seguito, per facilitarne la consultazione, evitando dispersioni.

L’attività di Al Hubbard è talmente sterminata che, comunque, meriterà approfondimenti e nuovi commenti da riservare (questi sì) ad articoletti futuri.

Tutte le valutazioni e le aggiunte di osservazioni in merito al lavoro di Alberto sono benvenute (gridolini di stupore inclusi)!

E adesso lascio la parola ad Alberto.

Allan (Al) Hubbard nasce in California il 26 marzo 1913.
Dal 4 aprile 1938 al 24 novembre 1941 è animatore ai Walt Disney Studios.
Dal 1944 al 1950 disegna e talvolta sceneggia storie a fumetti per il Sangor Studio (divisione West Coast), pubblicate dalle editrici ACG/CRESTON, BETTER/NEDOR/STANDARD, RURAL HOME, JAY BURTIS e DC/NATIONAL. Per alcuni anni condivide uno studio con Jack Bradbury, Jim Davis e Hubie Karp.

Dal 1950 al 1978 disegna storie a fumetti per l’editrice DELL/WESTERN/GOLD KEY, occupandosi soprattutto delle riduzioni dei lungometraggi animati e di personaggi quali Scamp (Lillo), Bongo and Lumpjaw, O’Malley and the Alley Cats, Mary Jane and Sniffles, Suzanne, Andy Hardy. Il suo tratto “morbido” deve molto a Walt Kelly, suo predecessore nella realizzazione di Peter Wheat.

Blog_fenwell_foxhubbard_2

Tra il 1953 e il 1978 illustra numerosi libri illu-
strati e giochi da tavolo con etichetta GOLDEN PRESS e WHITMAN.
Dal 1963 al 1979 disegna storie a fumetti per il Disney Studio, pubblicate soprattutto oltre-
oceano. È il creatore grafico di personaggi quali Fethry Duck (Paperoga), Hard Haid Moe (Dinamite Bla), Tabby (Malachia), Hustler Duck (Prospero Chiacchiera), 00Duck (01 Paperbond) e Mata Harrier.

Nel 1965 e 1967 assiste Al Taliaferro rifinendo a china strisce e tavole di Donald Duck per i quotidiani.
Si spegne nel maggio 1984 a Fallbrook, presso San Diego, in California.
