    Description

    The Art of Marc Davis Signed Self Portrait/Gag Illustration (Walt Disney, 1970). Presented is an original Marc Davis gag drawing that features a self portrait of himself at his desk at WED. This was given as a gift to Walt Disney's good friend Ray Bradbury (1920 - 2012). The quote above the self-portrait reads, "Damn it, get out of here. When Ray Bradbury shows up, I'll let you know." The pen and ink with gouache artwork is on a 17" x 14" sheet of paper, mounted to 19" x 16" illustration board. It's signed by Marc Davis and dated 6/22/70. Mr. Bradbury was a close friend of Walt Disney and a strong supporter of Disneyland, WED and its Audio Animatronics. His book Something Wicked This Way Comes was made into a Disney Studio feature film in 1983. This is very unique one-of-a-kind artwork for the hand of Disney Legend Inductee Marc Davis (1913 - 2000), from the period when he worked at WED. There is tape on border from previous framing, away from art; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
