    Singing Hamburgers Wall Plaque Art Group of 4 (McDonald's/Setmakers, 1974). The hamburgers in McDonaldland were happy little creatures that grew from the ground, talking and singing. This is a group of four Singing Hamburger plaque designs from developmental stages to the approved design. The first drawing is the final design that was signed off on by Setmakers CEO Don Ament in the lower right corner. The graphite artwork includes seven hamburgers across two plaques. The overall image with artist's notes measures 8" x 15.5" on 17" x 22" Setmakers-branded vellum. The art is framed in quarter-inch paper tape. The second drawing shows a single plaque containing nine hamburgers and the image with notes measures 8" x 18" on 19" x 24" Setmakers-branded vellum. This art is from the paint lay-in phase and is framed in quarter-inch paper tape too. Drawing three is a preliminary variation on the first drawing with different expressions on the hamburgers. The overall image measures 7" x 18" on 19" x 24" vellum. The fourth and final drawing in the lot is also preliminary and measures 5.5 " x 13" on 19" x 24" vellum. All show some handling and edge wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good.
