INKtober 2020 Day 21 – Mickey Mouse as Steamboat Willie

When I was a kid, we all knew there were two animated superstars. My generation grew up debating if Mickey Mouse or Bugs Bunny was the king of all animated characters. We all saw these two as the leaders of their dynasties. This fact let’s all know how freaking old I am, lol….

Bugs Bunny pretty much won the debate every time. Bugs was a staple on the Saturday Morning Cartoon Lineup year after year AND his cartoons were played everyday after school. We would rarely see a Mickey Mouse cartoon as kids. Mickey’s cartoons would paly once every other month on The Wonderful World of Disney which aired on Sundays. As a kid, I was over a decade away from the invention of VHS tapes. When Mickey Mouse was featured on television, it was a huge event.

Today, for INKtober 2020, I choice to draw Mickie Mouse as Steamboat Willie. I plan on making a complete set of nine cards in the future if I receive enough interest in this post. I would love to draw a few more of Mickey’s characters performances such as The Wizard, The Band Conductor, and Bob Cratchit. If you’d love to see my interpretations of more Mickey Mouse portrayals, please LIKE this blog and leave me a few comments!
