In 1988 he was the recipient of the prestigious Winsor McCay Award. In the 1990s, Mr. Ross began releasing hand-painted limited edition cels of his famous Looney Tunes scenes as part of the "Masters Collection" for the Warner Brothers Studio Stores and animation galleries. To promote the line, he made personal appearances where he also sold drawings of the Looney Tunes characters such as this. The piece shows minor handling wear. Condition is Very Good.
