    Virgil Ross - Bugs Bunny Illustration Original Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). "Now be there any livin' varmint who's aim's to try to tame me? Well, be there?" asks Yosemite Sam as he clears out the saloon. "I aims ta" says Bugs, cigarette dangling from his lips, in this classic opening scene from Friz Freleng's 1948 short, Bugs Bunny Rides Again. One of the chief animators on that cartoon was Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996), who spent many years at Warner Brothers, mainly working in Freleng's unit. Here's a wonderful sketch of Bugs in his cowboy outfit, in a huge graphite on paper drawing by Mr. Ross. The image measures 11" tall, signed by Virgil Ross in the lower right. The art is matted, with an opening of 9.5" x 12", framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 16.5" x 19". Fine condition.
