    Walter Lantz - Gag Cartoon Sketch Original Art (1926). This rare piece of original cartoon gag art is from an artist whose actual art is rarely seen -- animation pioneer Walter Lantz. Like that other famous Walter, once Lantz began his own animation studio, he left the work of putting pen to paper to other craftsmen, while he supervised the entire operation. That doesn't mean Mr. Lantz couldn't draw, as this cute pen-and-ink with added blue pencil sketch attests. Talk about a sticky situation! The art is on bristol board measuring 11.25" x 8", and has been matted and framed to an overall size of 23.5" x 20.5". Signed in the lower right corner "Walt Lantz", and dated in pencil "26". In Excellent condition.
