Virgil Ross - Yosemite Sam and Bugs Bunny Illustration (Warner Brothers, c. 1991). Sam and Bugs pose in period costumes, in this great two-character drawing by legendary animator Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996). Sam is dressed similarly to the way he looked in the feature-length compilation, 1001 Rabbit Tales; both look like they would fit in a version of The Three Musketeers. Mr. Ross was the animator on many, many Warners cartoons featuring Bugs and Yosemite Sam; in fact, he worked for directors Tex Avery, Bob Clampett, and most especially, Friz Freleng during his four-decade stint with the company. Several of his cartoons went on to win Oscars, and Mr. Ross was honored with the two highest awards in his profession, the Motion Picture Screen Cartoonist Golden Award, and the Winsor McCay Award. This drawing by Virgil Ross is on a sheet of 12 field animation paper, with image sizes of 5" and 7". Fine condition. Signed in the lower right.
