Joe Grant Sketch

I don't have much time tonight for a post, still, I want to put up something.
I find this sketch showing early versions of Pinocchio and Honest John absolutely fascinating.
Evil and innocence in one drawing. The tone here is much darker and more severe than what we see in the final film.
The fox's expression reminds me a little of Joe Grant's designs of the witch for Snow White.
It is a haunting image, no trace of comedy whatsoever.
