It is common for galleries/specialist dealers themselves to issue certificates of authenticity, as quite often animation art has either not been issued with a certificate due to the run size, it has been lost over the years from passing through collectors hands, or if it never made the studio program and was presented by the studios as gifts to employee's, artwork taken home by workers etc. Therefore please do not be phased by art accompanied by Gallery certificates.

Nickelodeon TV SpongeBob Sponge Bob Animation Art Production Cel #114

  • A cel (short for celluloid) is a blank clear plastic sheet used by the studio artist to paint an animated character or object based on the animator's original pencil drawing. The cels are then placed over a background and photographed in sequence to produce an illusion of life in the completed film or cartoon short. Every cel is different but this does not mean that every cel is unique. Often multiple copies of a cel were created by the Inkers as colour models in order to advance their technique and skills.
