    Virgil Ross - Wile E. Coyote Drawing Original Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s) These are beautifully rendered images of Wile E. Coyote, the eternally frustrated protagonist obsessed with catching the Road Runner. He first appeared in the 1949 cartoon Fast and Furry-ous. Virgil Ross (1907-1996) was a longtime Warner Brothers animator who worked in the Bob Clampett, Tex Avery, and Friz Freleng Units. He was famous for his action and dance sequences, as well as his facial expressions. He worked on three Looney Tunes shorts that received Academy Award nominations -- Tweety Pie, Birds Anonymous and Knighty Knight Bugs. Mr. Ross began releasing hand-painted Limited Edition cels of progressions of his famous Looney Tunes scenes as part of the "Masters Collection" for the Warner Brothers Studio Stores and animation galleries. He began making personal appearances where he created one-of-a-kind drawings of the Looney Tunes characters as well as other cartoons he worked on for other studios. He received the prestigious Winsor McCay Award in 1988. This artwork is on 16 field 5-peghole animation paper and image sizes range from 4" to 7.5". It is signed on the lower right hand aspect. Fine condition.
