    The Reluctant Dragon Baby Weems Concept Drawings Group of 3 (Walt Disney, 1941). Here are three concept drawings by Fini Rudiger (1914 - 2003) the wife of animator Bill Littlejohn, and was one of the first women to work at Walt Disney Studios in the capacity of story and design concept. This historic group of concept art is for the "Baby Weems" segment of The Reluctant Dragon. Includes is a pastel sketch of Baby Weems with playing cards measuring 5" tall, a rough character study of a nurse in four poses, one colored with watercolor, and a rough sketch of three doctors huddled together. All are drawn in brown pencil on 12 field 5-peghole paper. Baby Weems was created to demonstrate how Disney Studio's used storyboards and drawings in the development of an animated film and these highly stylized drawings from it are animation history. The group shows minor handling and edge wear. Condition is Very Good.
