DescriptionHank Porter - Minnie Mouse World War II Insignia Drawing Original Art (Walt Disney, c. 1940s). In collecting Disney World War II insignia art, it's important to note that Mickey Mouse was considered clean living, fun loving, and bashful around girls. His good guy nature caused him to only be used on approximately 35 insignias during World War II. Minnie Mouse fell into an even rarer commodity. Her use was very rare as were most females. Snow White was only used twice. This is a Hank Porter original concept insignia drawing of Minnie Mouse, in graphite and blue pencil on trimmed light paper measuring approximately 6" x 8". The outline of the logo on the wall makes us believe this art may be a prototype for a US Armed Forces Recruiting Effort job. Nice image of Minnie saluting, with a figure size of 5". Minnie's rare insignia appearances makes this piece very desirable. Minor handling and edge wear. Overall condition is Good.
