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, 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 (a superb glossy original concept-drawing mounted on 8 x 11" bond paper) and includes the following production notes along the lower edge of the frame: '(Bruce finds Phantom's "Achille's Heel") BL lands several double-spin-kicks to Phantom's throat, hurting him...'(Add various cuts and variants of same) (? How about those electric sparks?) Cont...''. An additional short note indicates that the red bounding box around the Phantom's head indicates the framing area for ' CU-inserts'. The storyboard is identified by the designation 'N-1' in the top right corner and features the original punch holes from the art-department compilation-deck.
