    Steamboat Willie Mickey Mouse Animation Drawing by Ub Iwerks (Walt Disney, 1928). Here's an original production drawing from Steamboat Willie. The drawing is from the hand of Disney Legend, Ub Iwerks (1901 - 1971). He was responsible for the distinctive style of the earliest Disney animated cartoons, and was also responsible for designing the iconic mouse. Steamboat Willie is notable for being both Mickey and Minnie's debut and also the start of a new era of animated short subjects. This is a rare drawing from the scene with the goat around the 4:06 mark. The drawing was rendered by Iwerks in graphite on 12 field animation paper. The paper is 2-hole punched twice for storage in a binder. The drawing is stamped "7" on the back and noted as "9" in the bottom right. Edge wear and age-related toning. Fair condition on this hard to find production drawing from almost 100 years ago!
