    Mickey's Circus Mickey Mouse Color Model Animation Drawing (Walt Disney, 1936). It may be titled Mickey's Circus, but Mickey plays a very minor role in this short where Donald is the star. As a result, good images of Mickey from it are hard to come by and this is arguably the finest of them all. Here is Mickey as the Big Top Ringmaster in full-figure and full color. Rendered in graphite and colored in watercolor, it is as good an image of Mickey as you are likely to find from this cartoon. He measures approximately 4.75" x 3.5 and is surrounded with an array of color call-out and inkers notes. Color model drawings afford collectors both the artistry of the original pencil art combined with the appeal of a full color cel making them incredibly rare and highly sought after. It is framed under glass with mat opening measuring 9" x 11" in a 16" x 18" frame. Some handling and light creases; otherwise, condition is Fine. Frame is sold as-is.
