    Description

    Hank Porter - World War II Insignia Concept Art (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). Outstanding Hank Porter (1900 - 1951) World War II Insignia artwork done for the 67th fighter Squadron. This unit was known as the "Fighting Cocks." It was deployed in January 1941 and saw service in the South Pacific and Philippines. It had substantial bombing runs of railways, airfields, and factories in Japan and Korea, and was deployed after the war in Okinawa. This is one magnificent Hank Porter drawing! Birds were the number one animals group used for insignias that did not use a Disney character. Great patriotic rooster image with boxing gloves, with an unusually large image of size of 8.5" x 9". Drawn in graphite with great red and blue highlights on trimmed vellum-like onionskin paper. Fine condition.
