THE HOBBITS WITH STRIDER AT BREE!

*This production art is from director Ralph Bakshi's personal collection*



This very rare animation cel is original, handpainted, and one of a kind. It was used in the 1978 Ralph Bakshi animated film, The Lord of the Rings, part 1.   He will sign this animation art, if you wish. Image size is: 11" x 13", and comes with a copy of the original animation background from the scene.


This artwork is original. Each piece was used in its own production, and is an historically significant part of each animated film. The cels come with a copy of the original background from the scene where available, or the sequence, or the film.


Ralph Bakshi  is a director of animated and live-action films. In the 1970s, he established an alternative to mainstream animation through independent and adult-oriented productions. Between 1972 and 1992, he directed nine theatrically released feature films, five of which he wrote. He has been involved in numerous television projects as director, writer, producer and animator. Bakshi began his career at Terrytoons Cartoon Studio in 1957, and made his debut feature film, Fritz the Cat  in 1972. Over the next eleven years, Bakshi directed seven additional animated features, including Hey, Good Lookin' (1982), American Pop (1981), Coonskin (1975) and Heavy Traffic (1973). He is well known for his fantasy films, which include Wizards (1977), The Lord of the Rings, part 1 (1978) and Fire & Ice (1983). In 1987, Bakshi returned to television work, producing the series Mighty Mouse, The New Adventures which ran for two years. After a nine-year hiatus from feature films, he directed  Cool World (1992), The Cool and the Crazy TV film (1994), and Spicy City HBO TV series (1997).  After painting for more than 15 years and having art shows around the world, Ralph returned to animation and is now in production of "Last Days of Coney Island" which was successfully funded on Kickstarter.com in March 2013.

An animation cel is made of acetate, usually 10 1/2 x 12 1/2". Each cel has been hand inked, copying the line of the animation drawing, by an "inker".  Then it has been hand painted  by an "opaquer" with colors selected especially for each scene in the film. When combined with the hand painted background, it becomes one frame of the film. Each cel is numbered by scene, and numbered by its place in the scene. It also has the letter of the sequence from which it comes. A sequence is made up of scenes. Each animation cel has its own individual letter and numbers.
