Larry E.'s Portfolio: Alberto De Mello

Layout artist and art director Alberto De Mello came to Filmation in 1968 after several years of work in Toronto.

Alberto De Mello

Alberto was another Filmation long-timer who worked there pretty steadily, for much of the last decade as a department supervisor, until the studio shut its doors in 1989. He went to Warner Bros. for the first season of "Tiny Toons Adventures," and did storyboards for Universal and Hanna-Barbera before retiring in 1998.

He is not Brazilian...(Hint) Not from this Continent, but he moved to Brazil and lost touch with him... :)

You are both incorrect about his background...the anonymous is more wrong but he has some Brasillian background from his fathers side, as well as Chinese, Portugese and many more. I would like to say I came across this article and it made me smile, I would love to know where you got the picture from as well as I would love a copy.

My information is also from a good source, myself, I'm his neice, or as he would proclaim, his favorite neice (His only neice!)

Tio Alberto was my uncle and my favorite uncle at that. To this day I still miss him and wish more then anything he was still around to see how much we've grown.

He was beyond talented and I am beyond proud of him.

Hi Larry,

Do you know when Alberto de Mello passed away? Do you happen to know what was the cause of his death? I will greatly appreciate if you can share the details. My family and I just learned about this a few days ago and we are devastated. I look forward to hear from you.
