    Description

    Shane Miller - "The Conquest of Spectoburg" Sketch Original Art, Group of 20 (undated). Famous Studios' background and layout legend, Shane Miller, tells a tale of the enchanted city of Spectoburg, in this collection of pencil sketches. Drawn in graphite on sheets of animation bond and ruled notebook paper (one small drawing is inked), Miller opens his imagination and reveals the citizens of Spectoburg, donned in garments which resemble the quaint style of early America. This project may have been planned as a children's book, and includes a hand-painted title page. There are also three printed illustration samples of work by Miller, including a Christmas card with his photograph. The image size of the drawings range from 4" x 5" to 11" x 14", and, although several of the sketches are very tan and brittle, they average Good condition.
