One trimmed 12 field sheet has four early concept drawings of the termites, while a second sheet (made from two 12 field sheets glued together and trimmed to 11" x 9.75") has seven more concept drawings, very close to the final version. Finally, the actual model sheet art with seven drawings and a title, signed by director Dave Tendlar (1909 - 1993); it measures 14.25" x 11.75". Art is in graphite and color pencils.
