    Description

    Fritz the Cat Model Sheet Drawing Original Art (Ralph Bakshi, 1972). Loosely based on the comic strip by R. Crumb, Fritz the Cat was Ralph Bakshi's debut animated feature film and the very first to receive an X-rating. This is a very rare hand-drawn studio model sheet of Fritz which includes four full-figure images, seven facial expression studies rendered in graphite and Ralph Bakshi Productions handwritten in the lower left. The film was on a tight budget, so pencil tests, and in many cases even storyboards, were not used, making pre-production and concept artwork from this film almost impossible to find. Model sheets such as this would be printed and distributed amongst animators to insure character consistency and original pencil versions are one of a kind. Measuring approximately 11" x 14" matted and framed with Plexiglas, the mat opening measures 9" x 12" in a 16.5" x 19.5" frame. Condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
