DescriptionThe Quick Draw McGraw Special Background Layout Drawing Group of 2 (Hanna-Barbera, c. 1990s). A big time Quick Draw TV special was in serious development at Hanna-Barbera in the early 1990s. Longtime studio background artist/designer Andrew (Drew) Gentile worked on this in great earnest. When it was decided the story was too similar to a competitor's story, the project was scrapped. Long-time Master artist Andrew Gentile did a series of concept art for this abandoned project. In this lot is an amazing concept piece of Quick Draw and Baba Looey at a western bar with a pretty bartender. Done in graphite and colored pencil in amazing detail, the entire 16 field animation sheet is taken up with art. Very 1990s stylized art. Also, in this lot is Andrew Gentile's background layout of the western downtown. It has in bottom border "Quick Draw Special" and "Town to Ranch w/Bus Stop." Graphite and colored pencil on pan animation sheet of 24" x 10.5". Both pieces are hand-signed by the artist, and both pieces on their own are amazing stunning pieces of artwork. Minor handling and edge wear. Overall Very Good condition.
