ABOUT THE IMAGE: 

This color model cel and model sheet of Wilma Flintstone was designed by Ed Benedict. The color model cel was silkscreened onto acetate, each cel was then hand-painted, using original Hanna-Barbera colors. Each piece features the signatures of Bill Hanna, Joe Barbera, and Ed Benedict. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity! 

Wilma Anna Flintstone (maiden name Pebble or Slaghoople—see below) is a fictional character of the original series, The Flintstones. She is the beautiful and attractive red-headed wife of caveman Fred Flintstone, daughter of Pearl Slaghoople, mother of Pebbles Flintstone and grandmother to Roxy and Chip Rubble. Her best friends were her next door neighbors, Betty and Barney Rubble.

ABOUT THE MEDIUM: 

Model sheets were designed in animation studio production to show a standard for how any given character would look in different poses. Since many animators could work on a single production, this model helped keep the character uniform looking throughout a cartoon. The Color Model cel established the characters coloring as a permanent reference tool. 

Limited edition serigraph cels are created by silk screening each individual color onto the acetate cel, one at a time. Each serigraph cel contains anywhere from 10 to 50 colors. This time-consuming process results in a beautiful piece of art which faithfully reproduces the beauty, detail, and magic of the original.

ABOUT THE ARTIST: 

Ed Benedict was an American animator and layout artist. He is best known for his work with Hanna-Barbera Productions, where he helped design Fred Flintstone, Yogi Bear, and Reddy on Ruff and Reddy. He began his animation career in 1930 at Walt Disney Studios.
