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 Katz (Batman Returns and Predator), this beautifully articulated artwork depicts the character of Bruce Lee skilfully evading death strikes 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 (a superb matt original concept-drawing mounted on 8 x 11" bond paper) and includes the production note"UPL, BL's POV: Phantom strikes down into camera...'' in the upper right corner of the frame. An additional note, "Several various shots as BL weaves and dod(g)es...", is present in the lower portion of the frame. The storyboard is identified by the number '21' 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 Katz (1940-2010).
The storyboard remains in very good 'production-used condition, with only minor handling-wear, and is perfect for framing...
