RALPH BAKSHI. Original Art, unsigned. B/w, 5x8. Ink drawing and doodles at upper left corner. Animator and filmmaker Ralph Bakshi began his career at the age of 18 as a cell painter for Terrytoons Animation Studio. He quickly became an animator, working on such characters as Mighty Mouse, Heckle and Jeckle and Deputy Dog. After becoming a Creative Director for CBS, Bakshi created and wrote The Mighty Heroes before moving to Paramount Cartoon Studios, where he did four animated theatricals: Marvin Digs, Mini Squirts, Super Basher and Bop and The Fiendish Five. In 1971, he created, wrote and directed his controversial Fritz the Cat, an animated feature that was touted as "the first X-rated animated cartoon". Bakshi followed it with even more controversial animated features: Heavy Traffic (1973) and Coonskin (1975). In 1977, he turned to the safer realm of science fiction, creating, writing, directing and producing Wizards and later directing an animated version of Lord of the Rings (1978), using a rotoscoping technique to animate realistic characters. The multi-talented Bakshi has also created and directed live action shorts and TV movies and directed The Harlem Shuffle, a Rolling Stones music video. Dirt at lower right blank edge. Fine condition.
