    Alice in Wonderland Dodo Model Sheet Original Art (Walt Disney, 1951). The Dodo is first seen riding a toucan on the sea (formed from Alice's tears) as Alice floats by in a bottle. On the shore, he conducts a "caucus race" with the objective being for sea creatures to run around until dry. When Alice grows to an enormous size inside the White Rabbit's house, the Dodo burns it to the ground, but not before Alice shrinks and escapes. Here's a rare hand-drawn animator's model sheet of the Dodo, noted as "Dodo Suggestions 2069." The art is in graphite and brown crayon, on paper mounted to a 30" x 21.5" sheet of illustration board. There are an amazing 25 images, plus a pasted-on book illustration print on the board. The reverse has interesting clean-up trimmed and mounted print images of the Dodo; a handwritten "JG" (for longtime Disney artist and writer Joe Grant). The model sheet art is photographed, with photo prints made and distributed to all those working on the film. Published oversized originals like this are very rare. There is a 7" crease that runs midway from the top through the title lettering; the board has toning, handling/edge wear, and a few minor stains; overall condition is Very Good.
