    Donald Duck World War II War Bonds Ad Preliminary Art by Al Taliaferro (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). Al Taliaferro (1905 - 1969) began at the Walt Disney Studio in 1931 and went on to be the man behind Donald Duck newspaper comic strips from 1938 through 1969. He was a Disney Legend Inductee in 2003. This is a rare Al Taliaferro original rough sketch for a Disney Studio World War II War Bonds ad featuring Donald Duck. The proposed copy reads, "And not only would your money have been safer in bonds -- but they earn you 4 for every 3!" Great image of Donald Duck being robbed as he is lectured to! Graphite and blue pencil on paper measuring 10" x 12"; artwork takes up 8" x 9". Light Al Taliaferro "Walt Disney" signature on bottom right. Minor handling and edge wear and minor paper fade. Good condition. From the Joe Hale Collection.
