Back in November I posted James Blagden’s awesome animation “Dock Ellis & the LSD No No”. The video had been produced by the New York based company No Mas. Recently, No Mas has teamed up with David Rathman to produce not only a set of prints based on the historic “Rumble in the Jungle” fight but this short animation entitled “Zaire”.
via No Mas:
“David Rathman’s Zaire translates iconic moments from the Rumble in the Jungle “the press conference, the rope-a-dope, Alis stunning knockout, delirious crowds” into a stirring black-and-blue toned watercolor time capsule.
Rumblevision: No Mas and Muhammad Ali Enterprises celebrate the 35th anniversary of The Rumble in the Jungle and Muhammad Ali’s stunning victory in Zaire. Original animated shorts by David Rathman, Jerome Lagarrigue and James Blagden debut 10/30/09. ”
