Comic Mint is the Premiere Gallery for Pop-Culture Collectibles. Specialists of Simpsons Animation Art since 1993, as well as other rare animation, and a magnificent selection of original comic book artwork by some of the world’s leading artists! “Bugs and Thugs ” (2000). Hand Painted Limited Edition Cel Created by Virgil Ross. This limited edition cel was inspired by such classic Looney Tunes cartoons as “Bugs and Thugs” and “Bugsy and Mugsy” (both directed by Friz Freleng). This image, created by noted Warner Bros. Animator Virgil Ross, captures bantam-weight Bugs as he “puts uo his dukes” to the pugnacious pair known as Rocky and Mugsy. This limited edition cel began with a drawing by noted Warner Bros. The master charcter line was then hand-inked onto an acetate sheet (or “cel”) along with the Warner Bros. Masters Collection / Virgil Ross gold seal. Each cel was then expertly hand-painted on the reverse side. The original background was reproduced using the lithography process on acid-free paper. In the final step of production, the edition number was hand-inked on each cel in an edition size of 500. This is the only unsigned Virgil Ross limited edition, and was completed and produced after his death in May of 1996. The artwork comes custom matted with 100% acid-free matts, ready to be inserted into a frame. The artwork has an image area measuring 16″ x 13″ inches (unframed), and is accompanied with the studio certificate of authenticity. We are an AUTHORIZED Studio Gallery! All sales are final.
