    Description

    Kermit the Frog Original, Signed Sesame Street Children's Book Concept Sketch (Jim Henson Publishing, 1999). Hi-ho! This is an original graphite concept drawing of Kermit in coat and scarf for his appearance in the Muppet Lift-the-Flap Book - The Muppet's Mixed-Up Christmas. In the book, Kermit, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and Animal get together to help Miss Piggy decorate for Christmas. This piece is signed by the artist Rick Brown -- longtime Sesame Street Magazine artist who became the lead artist for Muppets children's books. Kermit stands approximately 4.5" on a 7" x 4.25" sheet of tracing paper. The paper has been applied with a small piece of double-sided tape to a 12" x 9" piece of mat board. Some light creases and basic handling; otherwise condition is Fine. This sketch served as a character study for the artist to determine how Kermit would look in this publication. It's a wonderfully expressive, full-figure image of the Muppet who started it all. All original Muppet artwork is considered rare.
