    Hank Porter "Donald Duck" World War II Insignia Preliminary Art (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). Donald Duck was the number one character used for the studio's World War II Insignia Group. His image was used 216 times. This is an original preliminary Donald Duck World War II insignia drawing from the hand of Hank Porter (1900 - 1951), done for the Patrol Aircraft Rescue Boat. This was a group that patrolled the waters for downed soldiers. The design can be seen in the book Characters of War on page 44. This is a detailed graphite with blue pencil highlights drawing on trimmed paper measuring 8" x 8". Nice fun 6" image of Donald paddling a boat, with a life preserver as a framing device. Minor handling wear. In Very Good condition.
