    Description

    "The Great Mezmo" Comic Illustration by Marc Davis (Walt Disney/Landmark Entertainment, 1984). Landmark Entertainment was founded in 1980. Today they are a Global Entertainment Design Group that creates theme parks and attractions. Some of their work can be seen at Universal Studios with such attractions as Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man 3-D, Jurassic Park: The Ride, and Terminator 2 3-D. They also have done extensive work at Caesars Palace with the Forum Shops and Star Trek ride. They even helped design the Rolling Stones' Steel Wheels Stage! Disney Legend Inductee and one of Walt's "Nine Old Men," Mr. Marc Davis (1913-2000) was hired in 1984, for a theme park project for Six Flags, "Phineas T. Flagg's Power Plant" and other concepts. An amazing, original piece of concept art from the hand of Marc Davis for "The Great Mezmo." Art is in ink and gouache on paper measuring 17" x 14", mounted to a 19" x 16" backing board. It displays five storylines to the attraction, dealing with a magician making too many rabbits pop out of his hat. The level of detail on panel five is pure Marc Davis. The artwork is hand-signed in the bottom right. The cover sheet to the artwork has a Landmark sticker with the title of project and "Davis" as the name of the artist. To see a wholly developed and conceived theme park gag from the hand of Marc Davis is something special. Minor handling wear. Fine condition.
