Aladdin Jafar Oversized Drawing by Nik Ranieri (Walt Disney, c. 1990s).

 The Sultan's Royal Vizier is after Aladdin's magic lamp in his quest to take over Agrabah. His elegance and dry wit mask his evil intentions, and he is considered a primary member of the Disney Villains franchise. Here he is with a sinister smile, as drawn by his supervising animator in Aladdin, Nik Ranieri. Some of the other films and characters Mr. Ranieri worked on include Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (Roger), The Little Mermaid (Ursula), Beauty and the Beast (Lumiere), and Hercules (Hades). The art is in black marker over graphite on tan paper, and was created at a Chicagoland Mid-West Animation Lecture event, circa 1994-95. The matted black marker over graphite drawing fills the tan paper in an opening measuring approximately 15.5" x 22". Framed with glass; frame size is 21.5" x 28". The frame is sold as-is. Art condition is Fine.

Disney fans can now head over to Heritage Auctions to bid on this Aladdin drawing featuring the villainous Jafar. Best of luck in your acquisition of eeeeevil!
