DescriptionVirgil Ross - Sylvester and Friends Drawing Original Art (Warner Brothers, c. 1990s). Here's a cool set of drawings based on the 1957 Friz Freleng-directed short, Birds Anonymous. Sylvester is seen in five poses, including two with Tweety; one Tweety alone, and one image of Syl's cat buddy Clarence. Great expressions on Sylvester's face! The art was created by longtime Warner Brothers animator Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996), who was well-known for his action and dance sequences, and funny facial expressions. He worked on more than 230 cartoons with the Friz Freleng unit. 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 is on 16 field 5-peghole animation paper. Image sizes on this piece range from 1.5" x 2.5" to 7" x 5". Hand-signed in the lower right. Minor handling and condition is Very Good.
