    Floyd Gottfredson The Illustrator Self-Portrait Cover Illustration Original Art (Art Instruction Schools, 1976). Long-time Disney artist Floyd Gottfredson is hard at work cranking out strip art in this self-portrait cover illustration celebrating his 45-and-a-half year career. Gottfredson wrote and drew the Mickey Mouse comic strip from 1930 to 1975. The Illustrator magazine is a publication of Art Institute Correspondence Schools, where the young Gottfredson received his early training, so he was a natural choice as a cover feature article. The art is in ink over graphite with watercolor on board, with an approximate image area of 10.5" x 9". The art has been nicely matted and framed with glass for an overall size of 17" x 15.5", and is in Excellent condition. A copy of the published magazine is also included.
