    The Iron Giant Concept Art Group of 3 (Warner Brothers, 1999). "You are who choose to be!" says the Iron Giant to young Hogarth in this Brad Bird-directed film. This film premiered at Mann's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles on 7/31/99 and has since become a cult favorite. This lot is a set of three concept art pieces from the hand of longtime art director and character designer, Vic Haboush (1924 - 2009). These are a rare set of Mr. Haboush's original concept art color test paintings. They are black line prints of his concept sketches that he hand-embellished with gouache, charcoal and colored pencil. They showcase two images of the Iron Giant, and one of the Iron Giant being built. Two are on 8.5" x 11" paper while the garage scene is on 11" x 12.5" paper. Any and all artwork from this film is considered very rare and to find piece from this film painted by Vic Haboush is even rarer. Minor handling and edge wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good. From the Vic Haboush Archives.
