From the Publisher
Marc Davis animated beloved Disney characters such as Cinderella, Alice (in Wonderland), Tinker Bell, Maleficent, and Cruella De Vil. Walt said, “He’s my Renaissance man,” and included Marc within a talented group of animators nicknamed Disney’s “Nine Old Men.”
Walt Disney brought animator Marc Davis over to WED Enterprises, the group Walt assembled to design and enhance his new theme park. The Jungle Cruise attraction had opened in 1955 with Disneyland, and by late 1960, Walt asked Marc to think about new possibilities for it.
During the design of Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland, Imagineer Marc Davis worked on concepts for the project. Marc thought up a scene for the attraction known as Dead Man’s Cove; there, the hat on a pirate’s skeleton made for a cozy seagull nest.
The hitchhiking ghosts of the Haunted Mansion are iconic to the Disney parks. Marc Davis remembers, “. . . after I did this drawing, then somebody got the idea of the ghosts getting into the cars, which I think is a very cute gag.”
This deluxe two-book slip-cased Disney Editions set celebrating Disney Legend Marc Davis is perfect for any coffee table, library, or drawing table!
