In 1951 Searle collaborated with UK animation studio Halas & Batchelor to create a film version of William Cowper's story 'The Diverting History of John Gilpin'. British readers can now view the film at this link.
The drawings were later released in an illustrated edition. See them here
I came across a rather special video on YouTube on the making of Ronald Neame's 1970 adaptation of Dickens' 'Scrooge' which featured a title sequence designed by Searle. The clip features Ronald sketching on set and talking about the project. He draws in the sketchbook that I was able to look at and photograph many years later at his home in Provence.
