Marc Davis, one of the NINE

The new book

The new book

Marc Davis was one of Disney’s NINE OLD MEN.

That group of legendary animators and immagineers have shaped the fates of the Disney Studio in the early years. Without them who knows if Disney would be Disney today.

Marc was the creator of more than just beloved characters on screen, but key designer for the park’s attractions and rides. You will recognize his drawings in now famous imagery from “The Jungle Cruise”, “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “Haunted Mansion” to name a few.  He was the father of some of my most beloved characters of the Disney arena. Cinderella, SnowWhite, Maleficient, Aurora, Thumper and Flower…do I have to continue?

I was once again so lucky as to be one of the first to hold the book about Mark, that is to be released October 7th 2014. There will be a be a book unveiling and signing at the Center Stage Gallery in Burbank on July 12th 2014, where Alice Davis, his wife, and Andreas Deja will attend.

Unnecessary to tell you I was blown away by the book and had to have one myself, it evoked so many memories. So if you are an animation aficionado, a complete Disneyfile or just a fan of his work, mark your calendars and take the opportunity to see and buy this book early, before it is even out on Amazon.
