    The Reluctant Dragon Baby Weems Concept Drawings Group of 16 (Walt Disney, 1941). Series of sixteen story/concept drawings for the hand of Fini Rudiger (1914 - 2003). She was the wife of Tom and Jerry animator Bill Littlejohn, and was one of the first women to work at Walt Disney Studios in the capacity of creativity, design and story. This historic group includes sixteen of her original story concepts for the "Baby Weems" section of The Reluctant Dragon. Fourteen are on 12 field 5-peghole paper. Eleven are done with graphite and gouache on paper, the balance is graphite on paper. Fourteen are full sheets and two are trimmed pieces of animation paper. This compilation film with animation and live action was released on 6/20/41. The "Baby Weems" section is done through showing storyboards or drawings to tell the story. These highly stylized drawings from this section are a treasure. Dialogue is written in on many of these concept paintings. Minor handling and edge wear. Good condition.
