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, in kinetic motion, 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 superb glossy original concept-drawings mounted on 8 x 11" bond paper) and includes the production notes: 'Several rounds later, BL renews tactics, etc', 'Goes into several High-Double-Spin-Kicks combinations...' and 'Progressively faster, higher, etc...' along the lower edge of the frame. The storyboard is identified by the letter 'M-1' 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 storyboard remains in very good 'production-used condition, with only minor handling-wear, and is perfect for framing...
