Michigan J. Frog Model Sheet
By: Warner Bros. Studio
MEDIUM: Hand-Painted Limited Edition Cel
EDITION SIZE: 750
SIZE: 16.5” x 13.5”
ABOUT THE IMAGE: In 1955, Chuck Jones directed the classic Merrie Melodies cartoon “One Froggy Evening,” which introduced the world to the uniquely talented Michigan J. Frog.
ABOUT THE MEDIUM: This cel began with a master inking (from the animation) which was then silkscreened onto an acetate sheet (or “cel”) along with the Warner Bros. Animation Art seal. Each cel was then expertly hand-painted on the reverse side. The background drawings were adapted from an original Michigan J. Frog model sheet from Warner Bros. Classic Animation, and special attention was paid in the printing in order to capture the delicate line quality. The edition number was hand-inked on each cel.
