    Description

    Betty Boop Sketch by Grim Natwick (Max Fleischer, 1982). Beloved cartoon character Betty Boop was designed by Grim Natwick (1890 - 1990) while working for Fleischer Studios, making her first appearance in the 1930 short, Dizzy Dishes. Here's a rough but large sketch of Betty in graphite on paper, with an image size of 9.75". This was probably done during a presentation for The Mouse Club, the first serious organization of Disney collectors formed by California nostalgia dealer Ed Levin. The art is matted to an overall size of 16" x 20", and shrink-wrapped to a thick cardboard base with a hanger on the back, for a lightweight display piece. Signed and inscribed "To Ed." Very Good conditon.
