DescriptionRonald McDonald Statue Design Drawings Original Art Group of 3 (McDonald's/Setmakers, c. 1970s). Three items used in the development of the iconic Ronald McDonald statue are offered here. First is a detailed graphite rendering of Ronald waving. This is the original design used for the very first iteration of these statues, which changed several times over the years. The artwork includes a full view of the front and partial back which combined measure 14" x 16" on 19" x 24" vellum, and it is dated 12/1/71 in the lower right corner. There is a 1" x 1.5" piece of the lower right corner missing and a small tear on the bottom edge that has been repaired with tape. The second drawing is similar to the first but Ronald has been updated to his new look for 1976. Again, the full frontal image is paired with a partial rear view, with a combined measurement of 14" x 16" on 18" x 24" white vellum, and it's dated 2/24/76 in the lower right corner. Accompanying the two original drawings is a sepia print of the concept art for the 1971 statue prior to the revisions made in the first drawing. All pieces in the lot show minor handling wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
