Here is a nice piece of original art by Rob Roy MacVeigh, an artist who specialized in the Wizard of Oz. This is an animation cel of an awesome, very green Wicked Witch of Oz–mounted on purple background. From the club’s website: “Rob Roy MacVeigh was one of the Oz Club’s most creative artists and one of its most active and beloved members. Rob’s work for the Club included articles and art for The Baum Bugle; convention decorations, and logos for posters, programs, and T-shirts. Rob’s lifelong—and, unfortunately, unfulfilled—dream was to create animated movies faithful to the authors and illustrators of Oz. He made considerable progress in developing the full storyboard sequence for his version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.” He also did an Ozzy commercial for the Seattle Public Library.
Not sure which of his Oz-related projects this was from–there are some notes and the bottom but I can’t decipher them. The cel is about 10 1/2 x 12 1/2″; the Witch is about 8″ high and in very good condition. Macveigh passed away in 1992 and his art is getting harder and harder to find. I have a couple pieces on my website currently.
