"Fantasia" (1940) [Series] - Unicorn Model Sheet

More images of Fantasia items in the Cowan Collection...
This was an interesting piece.  A very large image of a Unicorn.  The image was trimmed and glued to one half of a file folder.  In addition, the approval stamp from the Character Model Department was glued to the file folder as well.  Probably the "JG" is Joe Grant.  I'm not sure about the "M.D." or "M.P." on the stamp.

  1. To me, it looks like M.P., and the style seems consistent with Martin Provensen, who later, with his wife Alice illustrated many books.
