    World War II Propaganda (War Production Drive, 1943). Poster (17.5" X 22") "Tokio Kid Say-" Jack Campbell Artwork.
    Disney animator Jack Campbell worked at Douglas Aircraft during WWII as an art designer. There, he produced propaganda posters, and one of his creations was Tokyo Kid, who was a well-known propaganda character during the war. The character appeared on a series of posters all depicting the ugly stereotype of the enemy as buck-toothed with squinted eyes. Although the Tokio Kid represented the enemy overseas, the image also tainted Americans perception of Japanese Americans. The Japanese race became a common enemy, regardless of nationality. The poster has been restored on linen and corrected a fold in the horizontal center as well as wear to the lower two inches of the poster. Very Fine- on Linen.

    Estimate: $400 - $800.
