eBay 1989 Orig GUMBY Book Cover signed & drawn by Art Clokey / illustr by Roy Wilson "SATURDAY'S TOYS Presents..."    a one-of-a-kind sketch of original cover art corrections from ART CLOKEY for the creation of an official "Gumby" coloring book.  Recently salvaged from a box of the project illustrator's personal career archives. Created for "Gumby Coloring Book of Opposites", as published by Checkerboard Press / Macmillan, Inc.  Copyright 1989 by Prema Toy Company (founded and owned by Gumby creator, Art Clokey). Artwork was created in 1989 under contract to the coloring book's illustrator, Roy Wilson. Includes the vintage 1989 fax (8.5" x 11") of Roy Wilson's concept drawing for the cover (as faxed to the publisher); and a translucent correction sheet (7 5/8" x 10") with personal drawings by Art Clokey, in pencil, along with his autographed signature (in ballpoint pen).  Notably, Clokey provides handwritten notes (in pen) indicating the correct location of Gumby's "bump"... on his LEFT side! In particular, Wilson's proposed book cover (8.5" x 11") was faxed to Art Clokey for review.  As corrections were needed on the drawing, Clokey simply placed his own original pencil drawings on a sheet of transparent animation paper; then taping the approved correction to the fax before returning to Roy Wilson for completion.  In addition to Clokey's original drawings, he also provided his own notation and signature in ballpoint pen:  In addition, Clokey's personal stamp of approval (light teal ink) authorizes his signature on the page on behalf of Prema Toy Company.  The page includes transparent tape at top margin. The faxed animation drawings presented here were personally drawn by Roy Wilson and remained his personal property as "contributor" per his freelance contract with Macmillan, Inc.  All copyright and reproduction rights remained with the publisher.  A reproduction of the entire one-page contract is included with the auction (as pictured).  In total, Wilson was paid $14,000 to create the illustrations for four (4) 48-page Gumby coloring books. Signed and dated on December 8, 1988 by Roy A. Wilson.  While there is no reference to Gumby's creator in the contract, it is clear that Roy Wilson maintained a close working relationship with Art Cloke as he consulted on character likeness; correcting and approving the finished design for each page of the book. The archive comes from the private animation collection of former Disney layout, background and story artist, Roy Wilson (1939 - 2017).  Along with a career at the historic Walt Disney Studio that began in the mid-1960's, Wilson remained in worldwide demand throughout his entire career, working at Hanna-Barbera, Filmation, Universal, 20th Century Fox, MGM, Warner Bros., DiC, DePatie-Freleng, Don Bluth, Fred Wolf, Marvel, Sunwoo and several other animation studios. Includes signed Certificate of Authenticity from Saturday's Toys and Disneyana AuctionsSaturday’s Toys and Disneyana Auctions was founded in 1994 by Southern California author and Disney historian, Dave Mason. Soon after eBay's launch the following year, Saturday's Toys was among the earliest Disneyana specialists to strategize for this rapidly developing technology.  Having delivered well over 10,000 auction items since then, Saturday's Toys is pleased to have teamed with researchers, collectors and friends throughout the world with a shared interest in the preservation of authentic Disney history.
