Back From Columbus

Jungle Book original art


Columbus, Ohio. The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum at OSU. This is the original art for my Jungle Book stories, The King’s Ankus and Red Dog, which I haven’t seen in close to 25 years. I retrieved it for Wayne Alan Harold and it’s the subject of our next color restoration project.
