Description: RALPH BAKSHI - American animator/draftsman. In the late 1950s & early 1960s he worked at CBS-Terrytoons on such series as Heckle and Jeckle and Mighty Mouse. From there he went to Famous Studios-Paramount, where he directed countless Casper the Friendly Ghost and Little Audrey cartoons, among others. During the 1960s he also animated Peter Max's commercials. When Famous Studios closed in 1967, Bakshi went into partnership with Steve Krantz. Their first venture was Fritz the Cat, released in 1972. The success of Fritz prompted Heavy Traffic , a funny-sad chronicle of life in New York's slums. Striking out on his own, Bakshi produced the sometimes brilliant, often disappointing Coonskin ; also Wizards ; Lord of the Rings . Ralph Bakshi occupies a somewhat ambiguous position in the animation world. He is one of the more original artists at work in the animated cartoon medium. He has become a cult figure. Offered here is an original drawing by Ralph Bakshi, unsigned but guaranteed authentic. As this is a "working study" there was no reason for him to have signed it. VG.
