mouse model

I made these lil baby mice back in December for a Christmas ornament idea… needless to say, that didn’t work out (wuh wuh wuh) so I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with them that wouldn’t disturb their sleep :P

Anywhosits, I finally realized that what they really needed were just some comfy beds to call their own, and now they’re also up for adoption in my etsy shop.

Floyd Gottfredson was to Mickey Mouse what Carl Barks was to Donald Duck: he drew and wrote great, fast-paced adventure stories for the character that rivalled those of Roy Crane and Segar’s Popeye. Umberto Eco was a fan.

Mickey Mouse Outwits the Phantom Blot (1939) of course is a classic. The first image is a painting Gottfredson did later in life, images two and three are from the comic strip itself. The other two images are model sheets.
