    Description

    Kermit the Frog Original, Signed Sesame Street Children's Book Concept Sketch (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 character study of Kermit with a hat on and off 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 art is matted with opening dimensions of 8.5" x 5.5" and overall size of 12" x 9". A second signature and description are written on back of the mat. Some light creases and basic handling; otherwise condition is Fine. This sketch served as a character study for the artist to determine how Kermit would appear in this publication. Ultimately it was decided to use Kermit without his hat on. That image can be seen on the 13th page of the book. A color copy of that page is included. Two wonderful images of the Muppet who started it all and an excellent example of the illustration process. All original Muppet artwork is considered rare.
