    Hank Porter - World War II Insignia Concept Art (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). An exceptionally nice Hank Porter (1900 - 1951) original World War II insignia artwork, created for the 602 Fighter Squadron. This Spitfire fighter plane unit was based in Scotland, and fought at the Battle of Britain and the Normandy invasion. This exact image was used for the cover of the outstanding new World War II Insignia book called Characters of Military. The art featured on the title page as well, and displayed with squadron info on page 8. It is the very first highlighted image in the book! Graphite with yellow and blue highlights on trimmed vellum-type onionskin paper. Strong image of the American Eagle with machine gun and bayonet, in an unusually large 7" x 10" drawing. The paper is trimmed to 10" x 11", with #1138 circled in the lower right corner. Could this have been the number of insignias Mr. Porter had designed at that point? Fine condition.
