(Disney, c.1964) A humorous gag drawing created by Marc Davis for fellow Imagineer Wathel Rogers. Rogers worked extensively on the "Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln" attraction and was tasked with wearing the early version of a motion-capture suit which would provide the basis of movements for this revolutionary audio-animatronic® figure. Rogers work would influence modern motion-capture technology and provide the basis of knowledge for later iconic Disney park attractions. This drawing was created during a very historic moment of Disney's audio-animatronic® technology, and features a great image of Wathel wearing his motion-capture suit while the Lincoln animatronic figure asks, "Wathel, why is it, that when you move, I move?". This drawing is accomplished in ink on 3-hole animation paper and measures 12.5"x15.5". The drawing is in good condition with some edge wear and spots of yellowing, as well as a vertical fold-mark in the center.
