    Description

    Virgil Ross - Bugs Bunny and Gossamer Drawing (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Virgil Ross (1907-1996) was a long-time Warner Brothers animator who worked in the Bob Clampett, Tex Avery, and Friz Freleng Units. He was known for his action and dance sequences as well as his facial expressions. He animated on three Looney Tunes shorts that received Academy Award nominations - "Tweety Pie", "Birds Anonymous" and the only cartoon that Bugs Bunny won an Academy Award for, "Knighty Knight Bugs." Mr. Ross began releasing hand-painted Limited Edition cels of progressions of his famous Looney Tunes scenes as part of the "Masters Collection" for the Warner Brothers Studio Stores and animation galleries. He began making personal appearances where requests for original artwork were met with drawings of the Looney Tunes characters as well as other cartoons he worked on for other studios. He was given the prestigious Winsor McCay Award in 1988. This drawing of Bugs Bunny (with his signature carrot) and Gossamer, inspired by the 1946 smash hit Hare Raising Hare is on 12 field animation paper, and hand-signed. Minor handling; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
