Marc Davis Sketch

I need to ask Alice Davis about the title and date of this beautiful color sketch. An amazing graphic composition emphasizing straight against curved lines. Look at the fluid movement of the python contrasting the bold straight lines of the giraffe's neck. There is no doubt in my mind that if Marc didn't have careers in animation and imagineering his contributions to American illustration and art would have made him a world renowned fine artist of the 20th century.

Get the book Marc Davis, Walt Disney's Renaissance Man:

  1. I already have Marc's book and I think it's amazing! This man was the best at coming up with ideas! I always thought it was a crying shame that he never got to capatalize on his dream of directing his own film with Chanticleer.

    Has anyone ever considered reviving that project? I think that if anyone should ever make another attempt at Chanticleer, Alice should serve as creative consultant.
