Artwork by Floyd Gottfredson. Floyd was originally hired by Walt Disney as an in-betweener in 1929. In 1930, Four months into it’s publication, he began to  temporarily work on the Mickey Mouse comic strip while Disney himself looked for another artist to work on it full time. Long story made short, Floyd ended up working on strip for 45 years straight!

In 2003 he was posthumously awarded the Disney Legend citation and was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards’ Hall of Fame in 2006.

After visiting Walt Disney World in Winter of 2014, my fascination with classic Disney characters was rekindled. I also became a new found fan of legendary Disney comic strip artists Floyd Gottfredson and Carl Barks.
