    Virgil Ross - The Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Wile E. Coyote tries to subdue his prey with hypnotism (no doubt learned from an Acme book), in this drawing inspired by the Chuck Jones-directed 1953 short, Zipping Along. Animator Virgil Ross spent many years at Warner Brothers, working with Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, and Friz Freleng, before moving on to Hanna-Barbera and Filmation, as well as brief stints with Ralph Bakshi (Christmas in Tattertown) and Walt Disney (The Little Mermaid). His series of limited edition "Masters Collection" cels were big sellers at Warner Bros. stores and galleries. He drew this piece on a sheet of 12 field animation paper, with image sizes of 6.5" and 8.5". Fine condition. Signed along the lower edge.
