This is a Signed Limited edition print.

Noontime on a busy street in Duckburg. Donald Duck has just picked up his new tweed jacket and bullied cousin Gladstone out of the loan of a walking stick. He stops at the florist for a bouquet and a boutonniere. On the way out, he bumps into one of his nephews lugging a shoeshine kit. Don checks his watch: there's time for a quick buff on the way to Daisy's.

A simple scene, but it shows us ourselves. His hopes and dreams are our hopes and dreams; even a downtown street corner can be touched for a moment with magic, and this has made the duck one of the world's most beloved cartoon characters. Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #620 (Series II), January 1999, featured Dude for a Day twice, the oil painting plus an explanation of the lithograph editions on the back cover and a variant-angle colour photo of the porcelain on the title page. Dude for a Day was printed by the Black Box of Chicago in 1991.

The image size is 10 x 8 on 13 1/2 x 11 Opalesque Silk TM paper constructed from 100% cotton fibres for strength and longevity, guaranteed not to fade under moderate, stable storage conditions for hundreds of years. Limited and signed from an edition of 595.
