Original Floyd Mickey - January 5, 1938

I always love seeing original artwork be it animation, illustration or comic art. As I've probably mentioned in the past I really love the early Mickey daily and Sunday strips. There is something really special seeing Floyd Gottfredson's original artwork for these strips.

This piece is currently up on auction at Heritage Galleries. The inking is superb, the lines crisp and clear. This work is very much in context with what was happening in the animation department at the time, it is of the very high standards that Walt was pushing in his animators.
