    The Small One Concept Sketch Original Art by Mel Shaw (Walt Disney, 1978). This Christmas-themed short tells the story of a young boy who must give up his aging donkey, named Small One; it was directed by Don Bluth. Here's a rare original graphite sketch of the Boy and the Small One, drawn by Mel Shaw (1914 - 2012). Mr. Shaw worked on several animated Disney features, such as The Rescuers, Beauty and the Beast, and The Lion King. He began his time at Disney by working on the 1942 classic, Bambi. The sketch is on paper, with an overall image size of 8.25" x 4.75". The art is framed with glass, with a frame size of 15" x 12.25". Very Good condition with minor handling and edge wear.
