    Ronald McDonald Reclining Dimensional Character Plaque Concept Drawings by Wes Cook Original Art Group of 3 (McDonald's/Setmakers, 1974). The Reclining Ronald McDonald statue and plaque were hugely popular items for Setmakers in their line of three-dimensional McDonald's decor. These three graphite renderings are concept drawings, each with subtle differences and all are from the hand of legendary McDonaldland artist and Disney theme park designer, Wes Cook. The first shows Ronald waving and measures approximately 8.5" x 17" on 17" x 24" vellum. It is dated 4/15/74 and signed by the artist in the lower right corner. The second drawing depicts Ronald with his head cocked slightly to the right and he is joined by a Gobblin and a pair of hamburgers in a floral setting. It is labeled Concept Drawing "Reclining Ronald" beneath the art and noted as drawn by Wes Cook in the lower right. The image measures 8.5" x 17" on 19" x 24" vellum and quarter-inch masking tape frames the piece. A third smaller version has Ronald on a different background and measures 4.5" x 9" on 17" x 21.5" vellum. On this drawing there is a 5" tear at the top center of the paper that has been mended with clear tape, and a 3.5" tear at the bottom center of the page. Each of the three exhibit minor handling and edge wear. Condition is Very Good.
