This is a rare original storyboard used in making "The Simpsons". Storyboards are where animation is created. Story lines, dialogue, action, settings, everything comes together at this crucial juncture before being passed on to the animation team to bring it to life. Storyboards are where the magic happens, and where animation directors do their most important work. What they lack in color and immediate visual impact, they more than make up for in rarity and creative authenticity. Storyboards are an important component of a serious animation art collection. This storyboard was used in making episode "Homer the Smithers", February 25, 1996. Featured here are Homer Simpson, Bart Simpson, Maggie Simpson, Marge Simpson and Lisa Simpson.

Original production drawings are one-of-a-kind pieces of animation art. Prior to the creation of cels, each character pose and action must be drawn in pencil. These drawings are the artistic backbone of the film or television show, and are much in demand by collectors.
While they lack the vivid colour of cels, drawings are very desirable for two main reasons. Many collectors prefer drawings because it is at this stage that the animators have really exercised their talents and brought the characters to life. Another appealing aspect of drawings is that they generally cost significantly less than a comparable production cel.
Original production drawings are a wonderful addition to any animation collection, and a great way to enjoy the artistry behind your favourite characters. See What To Look For In A Good Cel Or Drawing.
