AJ Colorforms

Not a Mego product, it’s awesome for sheer camp value.


New
to the Museum: The original production artwork
for this very colorforms pack. Thanks to Ron (Stabilio)
for the great submission, we’ll let him describe the piece:


This
is the art for the box cover. It is a laminated collage.
Basically, every place you see a different color on that
art is a separate piece cut exactly to shape and put into
place on the collage and laminated. A portion of this
(the head area) was also used as the cover of the insert
booklet.


The
art for the booklet that came inside the box is also
a laminated collage made the same way as the cover art.
It is sort of like a comic strip but the text and such
was added later in the production process. The smaller
black details on both collages appear to have been inked
in.


The
art for the actual vinyl pieces are simply drawn and
inked. Since they were printed in black onto the actual
colored vinyl, no colors were necessary.


Finally
the art for the background that you would stick
the actual vinyl pieces to is a watercolor painting.
