    Description

    Virgil Ross - Sylvester Junior Drawing Original Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s) Sylvester is teaching his son the art of mouse-catching, but the giant mouse is in fact a young kangaroo! Legendary animator Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996) has recreated images of Sylvester, Sylvester Junior and Hippity Hopper in this model sheet-style drawing. Mr. Ross was a longtime animator for Warner Brothers, Hanna-Barbera, Filmation, and several other studios, with an award-winning career that stretched back to the 1930s. He worked on everything from Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Scooby-Doo, as well as fan-favorites like Star Trek: The Animated Series and The New Adventures of Batman. These eight images are drawn with graphite and blue pencil underdrawing, on 16 field 3-peghole animation paper. Image sizes are 3.5" - 7.5". Signed in the lower right hand corner. Fine condition.
