    Description

    Rare Mickey Mouse Studio Promo Drawing Original Art (Walt Disney, c. 1930s). Walt Disney always liked to remind people that "it all started with a mouse," so let's begin this special auction with that mouse. We are of course talking about Mickey Mouse, seen here in a very rare drawing created for publicity use. Mickey squats down to sign his first name with an old-fashioned quill feather pen in this blue pencil drawing, done on 12 field 2-peghole paper. The image of Mickey is nicely detailed, but the unusual thing about this piece is that our Main Mouse can't spell his own name! This amusing blooper was "corrected" by someone adding an "e" in graphite to the drawing. Mickey's image measures 5.25" x 3.5", and the entire image area is 9.5" x 3.75". There is a large corner crease in the lower left that narrowly misses the "M" within the image, and there's a small bit of paper loss to the upper right corner; paper also has some mild toning. Good condition.
