Description

    Hank Porter - 788 Bombardment Squadron WWII Disney Insignia (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). Original preliminary Disney Insignia artwork for the 788 Bombardment Squadron. This is the work of Hank Porter, head of Disney Publicity Art. Cats, including Tigers, lions, etc., were the second-largest animal group after birds to be used for Insignia designs by Disney. This great image is on trimmed animation paper, rendered in graphite with extensive use of blue and red. The graphic nature of the bombs is striking. Trimmed paper is a circular 10", with the leopard being almost 8" long; the piece is partially finished, with India ink around the leopard. This unit was started in 1943 and was deployed in the European Theater of Operations in England, and was heavily involved in the bombing of Germany. In Fine condition.
