An original concept art design / storyboard from the production of the beloved biopic, 'Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story' (Universal Pictures, 1993), starring Jason Scott Lee and Lauren Holly and directed by ace-helmer, Rob Cohen ('The Fast and The Furious', 'Dragonheart').
Hand-painted by famed production artist, Nikita Knatz (Batman Returns and Predator), this beautifully articulated artwork depicts the character of Bruce Lee, launching his famous flying-sidekick, during the film's climactic fight sequence with his demonic nemesis - a fearsome allegorical character representing the concept of fear. It has been rendered in mixed media (two raised concept-drawings arranged as an action montage and mounted on 8 x 11" bond paper). This storyboard includes very detailed production notes, including: 'BL come flying out of the mother of all lightning flashes' and 'BL hits phantom in back (Electric sparks??)... Literally bounces off, etc...'. The storyboard is identified by the letters 'K-L-M' in the top right corner and features the original punch holes from the art-department compilation-deck.
This stunning example of original production-artwork by one of the industry's most respected and prolific storyboard artists would make a wonderful addition to any collection celebrating Bruce Lee, the world of iconic pop-culture cinema or the celebrated career of Nikita Knatz (1940-2010).
The board remains in good 'production-used condition, with some mild creasing and tanning along the far right edge, and is perfect for framing...
