David Hall Storyboard - Bill the Lizard

This storyboard by David Hall features one of my favorite characters - Bill the Lizard. Like the storyboard in a previous post, this was published in Surprise Package in 1944, page 48 to be exact as noted on the drawing itself. This drawing is a little rougher than the previous one, and this drawing is inked whereas the previous one was only pencil. I especially like the ink spatter as soot coming off the chimney sweep.

Studio notations on the back indicate that this storyboard was filed on Dec. 14, 1939, two days after the 'board in the previous post.

The size of this is a little puzzling 10.75 x 14.5. It has 5 peg holes, which is correct for the time period, but using Hans' excellent page on Disney field sizes, I cannot figure out what this could be, unless it is trimmed.
