DescriptionDan O'Neill Mickey Mouse Sketch Original Art (1991-92). Underground Comix guru Dan O'Neill can't seem to stop drawing images of the World's Most Famous Mouse! In the early 1970s, he and his crew of fellow cartoonists found themselves in plenty of hot water after their savage satire on Mr. Disney's beloved creations, in two issues of Air Pirates Funnies. Disney's lawyers came down hard on the rag-tag collection of artists, with a lawsuit that dragged on in the courts for many years. Naturally, O'Neill and company lost to Disney -- no more Air Pirates! Always the iconoclast, O'Neill continued to thumb his nose at the entertainment giant by drawing the Mouse on rare occasions, like this privately created watercolor sketch. It measures approximately 6" x 7", and has been attractively double matted, to an overall size of 11" x 12". It's in Excellent condition, and serves as a reminder of a talent that Disney should have hired, not sued!
