WILLIS O’BRIEN SINGLE PANEL CONCEPT FOR BABOON: A TALE ABOUT A YETI - (Unproduced, ca. 1960)   Pencil, pen & ink, and gouache on 5 ½ in. x 8 in. illustration paper. Executed by Willis O’Brien ca. 1960 and originally acquired from his personal archive. Depicts a giant ape creature surfacing from under the sea, confronting a killer whale and a man in a small motorized dinghy, with a large freighter in background.  O’Brien juggled three different giant-ape story ideas at this time, none of which came to fruition. Traces of handling, else Very Fine. From the personal collection of Willis O'Brien.
