A set of hand-drawn Oogie Boogie (Ken Page) melting concept art from the production of Henry Selick's stop-motion fantasy musical The Nightmare Before Christmas. While the finished film featured Oogie Boogie's cloth body being torn away to reveal a mess of bugs, this concept art depicted Oogie Boogie melting more akin to the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz.

These hand-drawn concept sketches depict six stages of Oogie Boogie melting. Also included are a concept drawing of one of Oogie Boogie's revolver-wielding cowboy slot machines and a single-sheet note for visual consultant Rick Heinrichs with a small doodle. The sketches are rendered by an unknown artist in mixed media, on illustration paper and are in overall good condition. Dimensions: (largest) 13" x 8" (33 cm x 20.5 cm); (smallest) 11" x 6" (28 cm x 15.25 cm)
