    The Prince and the Pauper Mickey Mouse and Goofy Group of 2 (Walt Disney, 1990). Walt Disney started a little-known "Visual Development Department in 1988 and one of its initial hires, was long time layout and character designer Alvaro Arce and he was hired as a "Visual Designer". This is some of the earliest work we have seen from the Prince and the Pauper project. Its original title was Brave Little Tailor - Disney Mini Classic. It's layout concept drawing of Mickey Mouse and Goofy. It's a detailed graphite rough on 12" x 16" paper featuring Mickey and Goofy inside the tailor shop. With it is a matching gouache painting with Goofy only on 11" x 14.5" board. Both pieces are signed by the artist and his notes on this project are on the back of the watercolor. Very rare look into Disney Studios development work circa 1988. Minor handling and edge wear; otherwise, condition is Very Good. From the Alvaro Arce Collection.
