    Virgil Ross - The Grinch Drawing (MGM, c. 1990s). When Virgil Ross left Warner Brothers after 30 years of service, he worked at a variety of studios animating for Marvel, Filmation, Hanna-Barbera and others. This is a remarkable drawing of the Grinch that measures nearly a foot tall on 12 field 3-peghole paper. Rendered in graphite over blue pencil by Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996) with color added. This signed drawing was created for sale at public appearances at Warner Brothers Studio Stores and animation galleries to promote his line of limited edition cels. A true legend in the industry, Mr. Ross won the Winsor McCay Award in 1988 for his contributions to animation art. Minor handling and edge wear. Fine condition.
