Jerrod Maruyama for “The Enchanted World of Rankin/Bass”

Jerrod Maruyama has an amazing piece in the upcoming show The Enchanted World of Rankin/Bass. “Rudolph & Friends” is a 16″ x 16″ giclee on canvas and comes signed. He says, “Like most kids, I grew up with the many televised special of this dynamic duo. From Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer to their animated take on The Hobbit, their productions are a big part of my childhood and It’s an honor to be included in this wonderful tribute to their lasting legacy.”


Curated by Rankin/Bass historian Rick Goldschmidt and Patrick Owsley, The Enchanted World of Rankin/Bass opens December 6 at Creature Features in Burbank.
