Obscure Artists No. 5 


BEN FARISH

Thomas Benson Farish è veramente uno di quegli artisti oscuri la cui vita e le cui opere si sono perse tra le pieghe del tempo. Farish nasce il 26 giugno 1911 a Denver, in Colorado, da John Carter Farish (1891-1920) e Frances I. Milton. Cresce a Pensacola, in Florida, con i genitori adottivi Fisher e Lee Edge, e I fratellastri Joe e Fisher Jr.

Il 15 giugno 1936, Farish sposa Ernestine Baker in Florida. Avranno due figli, Patricia e Carter.

Nel 1943-44, mentre è intercalatore presso i Famous Studios, scrive e disegna storie con "animali buffi" per il Sangor Studio, pubblicate da ACG/Creston e da Better/Standard.

La sua carriera nell'animazione continua alla Transfilm, dove collabora con Steve Muffatti, Bill Hudson, Keith Robinson e Howard Smith. Lavora poi per il New York Institute of Technology con il fondatore della scuola e produttore Alexander Shure, e più tardi, in California, alla Filmation Associates.

Farish scompare il 27 maggio 2002 presso il Villa Maria Care Center di Santa Maria, in California. È sepolto presso il Lompoc Evergreen Cemetery accanto alla moglie Ernestine, scomparsa nel 1988 all'età di 72 anni.


 

Thomas Benson Farish is really one of those obscure artists whose life and works are lost in the folds of time. Farish was born June 26, 1911 in Denver, Colorado, to John Carter Farish (1891-1920) and Frances I. Milton. He grew up in Pensacola, Florida with his stepparents Fisher and Lee Edge, and with stepbrothers Joe and Fisher, Jr.

On June 15, 1936, Farish married Ernestine Baker in Florida. They had two children, Patricia and Carter.

In 1943-44, while working as an inbetweener at Famous Studios, he wrote and drew funny animal comics for the Sangor Studio, which
were published by ACG/Creston and Better/Standard.

His animation career continued at Transfilm, where he worked together with Steve Muffatti, Bill Hudson, Keith Robinson, and Howard Smith. He then did work for the New York Institute of Technology through school founder and producer Alexander Shure, and later in California at Filmation Associates.

Farish died May 27, 2002 at Villa Maria Care Center, Santa Maria, California, and is buried at Lompoc Evergreen Cemetery, next to his wife Ernestine, who had died in 1988 at 72 years old.
