    Virgil Ross - Yosemite Sam "Model Sheet" Drawing Original Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s) Here we have a wonderful rendering of images of Yosemite Sam created by legendary animator Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996). Mr. Ross worked for multiple animation studios during his illustrious career, including a long stint with Warner Brothers in the Friz Freleng unit where he worked on more than 230 cartoons. He is well-known for his action and dance sequences, as well as his funny facial expressions. Several of the cartoons he worked on were nominated for Academy Awards, and Mr. Ross himself was given the prestigious Winsor McCay Award in 1988. This artwork shows six images of Yosemite Sam ranging in size from 4" - 7". They are rendered in graphite with blue pencil underdrawing, on 16 field 5-peghole animation paper. It is signed in the lower right hand aspect. Fine condition.
