    Virgil Ross - Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote "Model Sheet" Original Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Who out there doesn't like those classic Road Runner cartoons? These laugh-riot shorts were directed by Chuck Jones during his years at Warner Brothers Animation Division. This fun drawing, with three full-figure model sheet-style drawings each of Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, was created by longtime Warner Brothers animator, Virgil Ross, who was known for his action and dance sequences and funny facial expressions. Several of the cartoons he worked on were nominated for Academy Awards, and Mr. Ross himself was given the prestigious Winsor McCay Award in 1988. He spent time at several other studios, most notably Hanna-Barbera and Filmation. Mr. Ross began releasing hand-painted Limited Edition cels of his famous Looney Tunes scenes as part of the "Master's Collection" cels sold at Warner Bros. Studio Stores and animation galleries. This extra-large piece is drawn on 16 field animation paper, with image areas of 3" to 7". Fine condition.
