    Description

    "Tex" Model Sheet Hand-Colored Print (Hanna-Barbera, 1974). Animation genius Tex Avery (1908 - 1980) was a close friend to Bill Hanna, who got him his last job at Hanna-Barbera Studios. Some of this last projects were "Dino and the Cave Mouse" on The Flintstone Comedy Show and as a gag writer for Kwicky Koala. A special gag "Tex" Model Sheet was created by the Hanna-Barbera Ink and Paint Department, who made up a select few by painting them on cel. Bill Hanna was on who reportedly requested one. This is a large-scale mockup of the famous gag "Tex Model Sheet." It is a large, hand-colored (possibly for cel Ink and Paint reference) print mounted to foam core board measuring 23.5" x 18". This very rare hand-colored print comes from a longtime H-B executive's collection. The Tex Avery signature is printed. Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
