The amazingly talented Bill Wray has been kind enough to supply me with a few examples of some of Mel Crawfords original golden book paintings from "Rootie Kazootie - Baseball Star"
Just look these beauties over and let the saliva gently ooze from your mouth in splendid wonder and amazment.

Now I have never EVER come across a Mel Crawford original painting from his golden books work ANYWHERE - let alone from one of his BEST forays into that world. Looking at these scans tells me so much more about Crawfords technique and approach to the paintings than even the most well printed version of the book that exists. I can only imagine what it is to look upon these beauties with your own naked eyes.
Be sure to stop by Bill's blog and website have a look at his amazing and inspiring artwork and then take a minute to say "Thank you" for being such a kind and generous soul.
With any luck I just might be able to get some more high quality images of Mel's originals for you soon.
