    Description

    Mike Ploog The Black Cauldron The Horned King Character Design Concept Art (Walt Disney, 1985). The Horned King is considered the evilest of all Disney villains. He wants to rule the world and stamp out all of humanity in his attempt to persecute the entire planet. This is an outstanding one-of-a-kind character development study of this man of evil, voiced in the film by John Hurt. Striking pastel on paper, with two images measuring 13" and 8". In one, he is striking a fearful pose as he commands his subjects, while the other he contemplates his action on this throne. The art is on paper measuring an overall 17" x 15", with folded paper around the borders. Artwork is hand-signed (as Ploog) by the first figure. Mike Ploog was one of the main character designers on this film; his original artwork for just about any project is highly desirable. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition. From the Joe Hale Collection.
