    Tim Burton The Black Cauldron Gurgi Concept Sketch (Walt Disney, 1985). One of Tim Burton's assignments after being hired by Walt Disney Studios was to work on concept art and character design for this animated feature film. This is an early study of Gurgi (or possibly Creeper), one where his hair was NOT exploding. This from the personal collection of this film's producer, Mr. Joe Hale. Any and all Tim Burton original artwork from any Disney project is considered rare and highly desirable. This is pen and ink/gouache on paper sketch, with an image area of 6.5" x 5.5". The paper is mounted to black backing board. Great full-figure fun image of 4". Gurgi has some pretty large feet in this concept piece! Minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.
