    Bernie Wrightson - Ghostbusters "Hefty" Illustration Original Art (undated). Monster master Bernie Wrightson drew this detailed character design of "Hefty" for the "Ghostbusters" film. Bernie Wrightson once recalled his early film work, "The first thing I did was 'Ghostbusters.' I did some of the pre-production work on that and that was another one of these things that kind of fell into my lap. The guy who was the associate producer, on 'Ghostbusters,' Michael Gross, used to be the art director at National Lampoon and I had done some work with him there, back in the seventies. And then he moved on, he moved to Hollywood and got into movies. Some years went by, and I got a call from him one day. He apparently had kept a file of all the artists he had worked with on National Lampoon. He ran across my stuff in the file and remembered me as this guy who could do this kind of stuff that's scary and funny at the same time. Which is exactly what they were looking for with 'Ghostbusters.' So they brought me onto the team." This drawing has an overall size of 14" x 20", and the art is in Excellent condition.
