But today I'm presenting some things about which I have known for a while but want to open for discussion.
|Gary Player / Slazenger advert|
EAGLE Vol.11 No.26, 25th June 1960, p.8.
I think you are exactly right in your analysis but completely wrong in your conclusion..! My reading of it was that FB was supplied with a photo to work from - so that is what he did. It is exactly the dot-stipple technique he had developed up to and at that time. Interestingly published in the very issue where he was experimenting with changing it in that episode of Dan Dare. Discounting the possibility it isn't someone else trying out that stipple technique over a photo...Interestingly Player received very little for advertising the merchandise as we recently found out on his Twitter account - £5!
Over to you what do you think? Bellamy or not Bellamy?
The second one I present to the jury of Bellamy fans is Supermoose, yes! Supermoose!
|Supermooose from |
TV21 New Series #48 p.24 22 Aug 1971
Interestingly, considering this chocolate bar is all but forgotten, demand was so high in 1970 "you'll only find it in the Midlands and South England" it said on the advert in August 1971. It would have been too hot to store in Summer anyway! On my other blog I've uploaded all the Supermoose adventures I could find but the actual stories appear to be by Peter Ford.
Is this Bellamy or not?
Let me know your thinking!
