    Wes Cook - Gorilla Costume Illustration (Walt Disney, 1960s-70s). Wes Cook was one of the most prolific concept designers and artists in the field of themed entertainment and theme parks. His work also included film and television production design. He was one of only a handful of artists showcased in the Laguna School of Art and Design show in 2009 titled "Whole New Worlds: The Magic of Themed Entertainment." Mr. Cook passed away in 2005. This is an original piece of Cook concept art for a Gorilla costume. Astonishing detail on this gouache on board piece measuring 14" x 10".
