    Marc Davis "The Hedgehog's Septet" Concept Illustration (Walt Disney/Landmark Entertainment, 1987). Walt Disney once said, "Marc can do story, he can do character, he can animate, and he can design shows for us. All I have to do is tell him what I want, and it's there. He is my 'Renaissance Man.'" Marc Davis is a Disney Legend Inductee and one of Walt Disney's original "Nine Old Men." He had a stellar career at Walt Disney Studios in animation as well as a WED Imagineer. Mr. Davis retired from Walt Disney in 1978. Landmark Entertainment, a global entertainment design group founded in 1980, hired Mr. Davis for a series of theme park design jobs in 1987. This would be some of the last artwork that Marc would ever complete. He was hired for a proposed Valencia, California theme park that would have Mark Twain's "Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" as its main park character. A complete model of this proposed park was constructed. This is a rare ink and watercolor concept illustration for this park, titled "The Hedgehog's Septet." It is hand-signed by Marc Davis (1913-2000) in the bottom right corner and dated '87. What a "Country Bear Jamboree"-type feel to this beautifully rendered Marc Davis original artwork! Matted with an opening of 15" x 10", and framed with Plexiglas for an overall size of 18" x 15". Frame is sold as-is. Minor handing wear to the artwork. Very Good condition.
