This is a hand painted limited edition animation cel. This color model cel and model sheet giclee of Barney was designed by Ed Benedict. The color model cel was silkscreened onto acetate. Each cel was then hand-painted, using original Hanna-Barbera colors. Each piece features the signatures of Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera and Ed Benedict. Note: the cel can be framed separately and can be displayed side by side. There is an additional $200 to frame both standard framing. Model sheets were designed in animation studio production to show a standard for how any given character would look in different poses. Since many animators could work on a single production, this model helped keep the character uniform looking throughout a cartoon. The Color Model cel established the characters coloring as a permanent reference tool. Featured here is Barney Rubble. 800

Hand-painted limited editions recreate classic moments from great cartoons, using the same materials and techniques as were used in making the originals. Some limited editions are exact reproductions of frames from the films they represent, while others, such as Chuck Jones’ limited editions, are based on contemporary interpretations of great characters and scenes.
In either case, the animator’s drawing is transferred onto acetate cels, then each is meticulously hand-painted by studio artists. Each piece is hand-numbered in small edition sizes of between 100 and 750. In some cases the finished cels are then signed by the animator.
As the great majority of original cels from the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s are no longer in existence, limited edition cels allow collectors an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy some of the greatest moments in the history of animation.
