Quick Overview

Fred "Tex" Avery (1908-1980) Stars and Stripes Forever (1924) original cartoon art. This is the original drawing created by famed cartoon director Tex Avery for a cartoon that he submitted for publication and was returned to him with suggestions for improvement. The artist was 16 or 17 when he created this drawing; he titled his original "Stars and Stripes Forever!" below the image and signed "Avery '24" at lower right. On the back are a sketch and handwritten guidelines for alterations signed by (editor?) F. Campbell that would make the cartoon suitable for publication. In 1924 Avery was living in Taylor, Texas and attending North Dallas High School. His cartoons appeared in the school's publications, and he aspired to create a comic strip for newspaper syndication. He held onto that goal after moving to the Los Angeles area after finishing high school. He stated in the interview with Joe Adamson published in Tex Avery: King of Cartoons that at the time "animation to me was nothing, it was just a step I had to go through till I got my strip going." By the early 1930s Avery took a job in animation with Walter Lantz, and within a few years moved to Leon Schlesinger's studio to directed cartoons for Warner Bros. In 1942 he joined Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer for a spectacular ten-year run that produced a body of work unlike any other in American animation. India ink on board, 6.75 x 10 inches. Text and drawing on verso. In Very Good condition. Howard Lowery Certificate of Authenticity is included. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La.
