    Description

    Virgil Ross "The Art of Gossamer" Model Sheet Original Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Gossamer made his first appearance in the 1946 short Hare-Raising Hare. He made a few more cameo appearances over the years, including one in Space Jam with Michael Jordan in 1996. This is original artwork of Gossie from the hand of longtime Warner Brothers animation legend, Mr. Virgil Ross. Mr. Ross worked at Warner Brothers for 30 years, with most of his time in the Friz Freleng Unit. He released a unique hand-painted limited edition line of cels in the early '90s from scenes in which he animated, displaying sequences of the characters. To promote this line, he did personal appearances at Warner Brothers Studio Store Galleries and Animation Art Galleries across the country. He did these drawings to have original artwork to sell at his appearances. This is a great 16 field model sheet type drawings done in graphite over blue pencil by Mr. Ross. It showcases five images of Gossamer, with sizes ranging from 3" to 10". The artwork is hand-signed by Mr. Ross (1907 - 1996). Minor handling and edge wear. Very Good condition.
