DON BLUTH STUDIO
The Secret of NIMH (1982)
four (4) original production animation drawings
blue, red and black pencil on two (2) untrimmed and two (2) 9" x 12" and 9.5" x 12" trimmed animation sheets, image sizes: 5.5" x 7", 4.75" x 2", 8" x 6" and 5" x 5.5"
These four (4) original rough animation drawings of three lead characters were created by Don Bluth Studio animators in development of scenes in the animated feature. Included are two (2) of Justin and one (1) each of Mrs. Brisby and Jeremy. The drawing of Mrs. Brisby and one (1) of Justin are animator's extremes with grids at right; the Jeremy drawing bears the "Don Bluth Productions Inc. / Authentic Animation Artwork" embossing seal at lower right; the other drawing of Justin is marked "out" so it was likely not used in the final animation. The animator wrote the designation "105" on the extreme of Justin at lower right to indicate its place in the scene; registration holes and numbers are trimmed from the bottom of two sheets. Our certificate of authenticity is included.
There is light handling; small spots on the drawing of Mrs. Brisby affect the image; there are creases and small tears at edges of two and tape along the bottom of the Justin extreme, all well away from the art images: overall, VERY GOOD-FINE condition.
