    Mickey Mouse Color Model Animation Cel (Walt Disney, 1990s).
    Walt Disney once said, "When people laugh at Mickey Mouse, it's because he's so human; and that is the secret of his popularity. I only hope that we don't lose sight of one thing - that it was all started by a mouse." In this lot we have an amazing color model cel of the iconic mouse. The color model cels were rendered from original drawings by Willie Ito. The color model cels show Mickey playing his guitar in one image and singing in the other image. Mickey measures a whopping 5.5" tall in each rendering. The cel is hand-inked and hand-painted on acetate affixed to illustration board of 19" x 13.5". Color model cels of Mickey Mouse are considered very rare. This is a great opportunity not to be missed by any discerning collector of animation art. The artwork is from the collection of Paul Wenzel who was Disney Consumer Products first Art Director for their creative publishing team. Artwork is in Fine condition.
