    The Iron Giant Concept Art (Warner Brothers, 1999). The Iron Giant premiered at Mann's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles on July 31, 1999 and received widespread critical acclaim. It was one of the last animated films of the hand-drawn era and these concept paintings were 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 lot is a pair of his concept paintings. One is a very detailed scene of a path cut through the forest by the Iron Giant with young Hogarth Hughes hot on the trail, on an 11" x 17" sheet of paper. The second painting is looser and depicts Hogarth and his dog as they come upon the Giant tangled in power lines. It is on a 8.5" x 11" paper. Both are black line prints with hand-embellishment using gouache, charcoal, and ink. The pieces show pinholes and some minor handling wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good. From the Vic Haboush Archives.
