    Wile E. Coyote Original Illustration by Virgil Ross (Warner Bros. c. 1990s). Wile E. Coyote often orders complex, preposterous gadgets from the ACME mail-order company, which he hopes will help him catch The Road Runner. Presented in this lot is a great image of the Coyote on his ACME skis in hot pursuit of the Road Runner. The piece was created by legendary Warner Brothers animator, Virgil Ross (1907 - 1996). Ross spent over 30 years in animation working with such giants as Ub Iwerks, Tex Avery, Walter Lantz, Friz Freleng, and Bob Clampett. The Coyote measures about 10" x 5", rendered in graphite and color pencil on 12 field animation paper. The artwork is hand-signed by the artist and housed in a frame of 19" x 17" with a matboard aperture of 12" x 9.5". Frame sold as-is. Artwork condition is Fine.
