    Alex Toth Dune Patrol Concept Art Animation Art (Hanna-Barbera, 1973). In the early 1970s, Alex Toth was the go-to guy for pitch pieces at Hanna-Barbera. Whatever wild and kooky idea they had for an animated cartoon, he would make it real and exciting... usually in just one image! Here, the concept is a Cop show set on the Beach. This lot comes with the original Toth piece, and the "alternative heads" created by a different artist. Both versions of this were featured on Page 280 of the hardback Genius Animated: The Cartoon art of Alex Toth. This pitch piece was created edge-to-edge in ink and watercolor on 20" x 15" illustration board. Signed and dated in the image area. The replacement heads were created in ink, marker, and watercolor on paper. They were at one point affixed over the main art, but have since been removed. They are included separately. Lightly toned, the piece is in Very Good condition.
