A hand-drawn Norman Reynolds "The Gump" concept sketch from the production of Walter Murch's dark fantasy Return to Oz. Reynolds was the film's production designer.
This color sketch is rendered in pencil and marker on illustration paper and depicts a front view of the mounted head of a Gump (a moose-like creature native to the Land of Oz) with its tongue out and a side view of the head bound with rope to a couch. It is hand-labeled "The Gump" and signed "Reynolds. Jan. 83.". It exhibits staining around the edges and pinholes in the corners.
