DescriptionPete's Dragon Elliott Storyboard Drawing and Color Model Cel with Joe Hale Photo Group (Walt Disney, 1977). "Remember his face. Try real hard!" Pete shows Elliott a photo of Nora's lost love Paul, in this superb hand-painted color model cel. This is a 16 field cel, placed on a photo background and matted, with an opening of 13.5" x 10.5"; overall mat size is 20" x 16". A Disney Certificate of Authenticity is on back of the mat. Included with the cel is an original storyboard drawing of Elliott listening in as Pete and Lampie have a conversation. The art is by Disney Legend Inductee Ken Anderson, who designed Elliott and served as Animation Art Director on the film. Art is in conté crayons on paper, with an image area of 6.75" x 4" and affixed to a black lightweight board measuring 11" x 9". A black and white photo print of Joe Hale, who served as layout artist on this film, is included; Joe is standing by the tacked-up storyboards and scene photos. The print is signed by Mr. Hale, and measures 8" x 10". Cel and photo are in Fine condition; storyboard drawing is in Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
