    Description

    A Bug's Life Children's Storybook Background Illustrations Original Art Group of 2 (Pixar/Golden Books, 1998). Pair of rare hand-painted 2-page spread background paintings for a children's storybook based on Pixar's 1998 computer-animated film. Very lovely images, painted in gouache/watercolor using airbrush for highlights, including the blue cloud-streaked sky for pages 7/8, and the golden rays of the sun for pages 9/10. Ink is used for outlines and detail. Each spread is on skimmed illustration board, with approximate image sizes of 18.5" x 9.5". The skimmed art has been reattached to backing boards with tape. Paper print overlays show the concept drawings with characters (that would be painted on cel for the finished art) for each spread. Minor handling wear; Very Good to Fine condition.
