Animation World Magazine, Issue 3.3, June 1998
Marc Davis Collecting Fans. Veteran Disney animator and designer Marc Davis, who worked at the studio from 1935-1978 on such productions as Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Pinocchio, has formed an official Marc Davis Collectors' Society to offer his fans, and especially galleries, to access (read: purchase) new, limited edition art based on materials from his vaults. Membership to the society is limited to 5,000 people. A $275.00 lifetime membership includes a hand-signed, limited edition lithograph based on a design for the "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride at Disneyland, a newsletter announcing future limited edition releases and an invitation to an annual "Marc Davis Convention." In forming this society, Davis is taking a path chosen by other retired animators such as Chuck Jones, who are making new careers out of their respective pasts in animation's "Golden Age."
