    Quisp and Quake Cereal Commercial Production Background and Drawing Group (Jay Ward, c. 1965). The Art of Jay Ward Studios has never been better showcased than in this incredible (and incredibly rare) pan production background, with overlay, from an animated commercial promoting the twin Quaker Oats cereal brands, Quisp and Quake. This long pan background painting shows Quake's "Inner Earth's Core" assembly line, ready to roll out boxes of his sugary cereal. The mixed-media art is on paper and Bristol board with an approximate image area of 35" x 10". The purple column of rock on the right is also on paper, attached to an acetate overlay. The detailed matching (and very colorful) layout drawing is also included, color pencil art on paper. Fine condition. We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Wow!
