    "Sleepy Bambi" Fine Art Limited Edition Print Signed by Ollie Johnston #88/500 (Walt Disney, 1990). Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston, both Disney Legend Inductees, as well as members of "Walt's Nine Old Men," wrote a book entitled Walt Disney's Bambi - The Story and the Film. To promote this book, they did a global tour of art galleries, lecture halls, and Disney theme parks. They created high-grade special Fine Art Bambi pieces to be sold in conjunction with the book on this personal apperances tour. These Fine Art lithographs sold out very quickly. They released four Suites of 2. Each suite had a hand-signed Fine Art lithograph created from original Frank Thomas artwork and one piece created from original Ollie Johnston artwork. This is a very hard-to-find Limited Edition Fine Art lithograph from that Frank and Ollie Tour, entitled "Sleepy Bambi." It was the Ollie Johnston part of Suite 3. It's an adorable image featuring Thumper looking at a young Bambi falling asleep in tall grass. This stunning piece was printed on Ungei heavy paper and bears the chop mark of American Atelier in New York. Printing was done under the supervision of the artist, Mr. Ollie Johnston (1912 - 2008). The piece is hand-signed by Ollie Johnson; edition size was 500 and this is #88. The print is matted with an opening of 11" x 9" and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 20" x 16". These pieces rarely turn up in the marketplace. Frame is sold as-is, print condition is Very Good.
