Louisiana Lottery "Ms. Heart Rate" TV Commercial Production Cel Setup and Animation Drawing (Kurtz, c. 1990s) Hilarious, award-winning ad for the Louisiana Lottery, features "Ms. Heart Rate" - who works up a sweat simply by playing scratch off cards! She has unsuccessfully tried to have them delivered, like a pizza - and has reluctantly sent her dog to the store to fetch some. This excellent hand-inked, hand-painted production cel setup, shows Ms. Heart Rate on her recliner, waiting for a pizza delivery guy and munching on donuts in the meantime. Her dog, Scrap, is on the phone with the Lottery, and has just been informed that not only can scratch cards not be delivered, but there isn't even a drive-thru where they can be bought! The very idea! Excellent production cel setup features excellent rough "sketchy" line work, reflecting trends in early 1990s-era graphic design. Also included is an original animation drawing, featuring the upper half of Ms. Heart Rate - unusual for animation, the drawing is in ink, rather than graphite. Very large image area is 8.5" x 6". Award-winning animator/ director Bob Kurtz has signed the bottom right of the cel setup and the drawing. Cels have been placed over a print background for display purposes. In Fine condition.
