    Description

    Mike Ploog Heavy Metal "Taarna" Segment Animation Design Original Art (Columbia, 1981). Mike Ploog was one of the designers for the Taarna and B-17 segments of this cult-classic animated movie. Here we have a design that was likely intended to be in the background of Taarna's fly-over intro sequence. A lovely and highly detailed piece, it is produced in pure graphite on onionskin paper. Ploog signed it in the image area and it bears an embossed Columbia/Heavy Metal seal in the lower right corner. The image area measures 14" x 10". The page edges are ragged and ripped in a couple of places, but not into the image. Overall in Very Good condition. From the Tom Tataranowicz Collection.
