The third piece is an original character study/model sheet of Bianca with seven images in graphite measuring 3" to 5" on 12" x 15" paper. This piece too is protected by acetate. Last piece is a layout/study of Bernard in Australia. Pen and ink/gouache on 12" x 15" paper under acetate. Two of the pieces are signed by the artist.
