    Doug Wildey Ventura Preliminary Illustration Animation Art (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1970s). A fantastic look behind the scenes of Hanna-Barbera, where Doug Wildey was one of the concept artists and creators. This 22" x 15.75" sheet of Bristol board has several images (some pure graphite, some ink and hand-colored) for a pitch for a series starring the lovely Ventura and her Griffon. Notes include animation directions for diving, hovering, flying, and walking. Gorgeous work and a shame it was never produced as a series. The sheet was torn in half and has been taped back together from the backside. There is a crease in the top center, with a small nick in the top edge. Overall in Very Good condition.
