    The Iron Giant Concept Art (Warner Brothers, 1999). The Iron Giant premiered at Mann's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles on July 31, 1999 to widespread critical acclaim. It was one of the last animated films of the hand-drawn era and this concept painting was created by a veteran of that era, Vic Haboush. Mr. Haboush began his career at Disney Studios in the early '50s and quickly became one of the character stylists who brought Disney into the modern age. He later worked for many of the other top animation studios and remained a force in the industry well into the nineties. This is a striking composition of the Iron Giant, eyes glowing red, about to do battle with three tanks. The artwork is a black line print of the artist's original concept sketch on an 11" x 17" sheet of paper with hand-embellishment using gouache, charcoal, and ink. The piece shows minor handling wear; otherwise, condition is Fine. From the Vic Haboush Archives.
