    "The Art of Dumbo" Illustration by Don "Ducky" Williams (Walt Disney, c. 1990s). So ya like to pick on the little guys? Why don't you pick on me!" says Timothy Mouse, challenging the gossiping circus elephants. From that point he begins his friendship with Dumbo and they set about the task of freeing his mother. Their budding friendship is beautifully depicted this published original painting by legendary Disney theme park character artist Don "Ducky" Williams. He served for 37 years in Walt Disney World's resort marketing department and was known as the park's top character artist. His amazing illustrations appear throughout Disney theme parks, hotels and cruise lines and on an array of promotional and retail items. This large-scale gouache on board painting was used to make a Fine Art limited edition lithograph that was sold in the Disney theme parks and art galleries. An artist's proof of the 16" x 20" print is included in the lot. It is very rare opportunity to own the print and the one-of-a-kind painting used to make it. Both pieces are hand signed by the artist. The painting is in a frame of 34" x 29" with a mat opening of 21" x 17". Condition is Very Good and frame is sold as-is.
