    "The Art of Disney's Renaissance" Billboard Illustrations by Don "Ducky" Williams Group of 7 (Walt Disney, c. 1990s). Don "Ducky Williams" was a Senior Character Artist for Walt Disney Resorts Marketing for 37 years, retiring in 2017. His work can be seen virtually everywhere in Disney's theme parks, resorts, and cruise lines in the form of signs, banners, brochures, advertising, and even billboards. This lot features some of the finest examples of signage artwork to come out of Disney. It includes seven original Don "Ducky" Williams paintings used for a series of Walt Disney World Billboards. The billboard campaign focused on the films of the Disney Renaissance and in each the characters are presented in key poses with open space for messaging.
