    Description

    Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and Animal Original, Signed Sesame Street Children's Book Art (Jim Henson Publishing, 1999). ""I guess we aren't going to find Piggy's Christmas decorations after all", Kermit said." This is an original graphite concept sketch of Fozzie, Gonzo, and Animal from the Muppet Lift-the-Flap Book - The Muppet's Mixed-Up Christmas. This piece is signed by the artist Rick Brown -- longtime Sesame Street Magazine artist who became the lead artist for Muppets children's books. The overall image of this drawing measures approximately 6.5" x 7" on an 8.5" x 10.25" sheet of tracing paper. The paper has been applied with a small piece of double-sided tape to a 9" x 12" piece of mat board. A description written by the artist is on the back of the mat. The lower right corner has been trimmed off, graphite smudges above Fozzie, some light creases, and basic handling; otherwise condition is Very Good. The final, published version of this sketch can be found on the twelfth page of the book. A color copy of that page is included. In it you'll notice that everything is similar to the sketch with the exception of Animal who no longer has a pumpkin on his head. This is wonderful grouping of Kermit and his Muppet pals. All original Muppet artwork is considered rare.
