    Tim Burton The Black Cauldron The Horned King Character Design Drawing (Walt Disney, 1985). Tim Burton's Cal Arts short Stalk of the Celery Monster was noticed by Walt Disney Productions Animation Department, resulting in him getting an apprenticeship at the studio. One of his first assignments was to do a series of character design art for The Black Cauldron. While he never received any screen credit, he did do a great deal of work in character design for this film. Here is one of Mr. Burton's incredible creations: an outstanding original character design/concept painting of The Horned King. Art is in ink and gouache on paper measuring 11" x 11". The Horned King is riding on a very Tim Burton-like mount to lead the charge! An amazing image measuring almost 10" x 10", one of the larger Burton paintings we have seen for this film. Any and all Tim Burton original artwork is considered RARE. Minor handling wear and pinholes in the corners. Very Good condition. From the Joe Hale Collection.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
