Description: Untitled Egyptian cat totems artwork, July 2000. Mixed media on paper. 9" x 11 1/2". Hubley was an animator known for her experimental hand-drawn work both in collaboration with her husband John Hubley, and by herself after her husband's passing. They jointly worked on more than 20 short films and founded Storyboard Studios, an independent animation studio. The Hubleys won Oscars for their shorts: Moonbird (1959), The Hole (1962) and A Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass Double Feature (1966); they also received Oscar nominations for Windy Day, Of Men and Demons, Voyage to Next and A Doonesbury Special. Her many solo projects established her as a significant film creator in her own right. She began her first solo project, W.O.W. (Women of the World), after being diagnosed with “terminal” breast cancer in 1975. Her solo career culminated 24 animated films.
