Weekly Challenge #95: "Mickey"


I haven't loved a weekly challenge this much since the one where we had to illustrate (in tangles) the part of the world in which we live. If this was a Disney challenge instead of a Mickey challenge, I expect a lot of us would have burned right past Mickey and come to a screeching halt in front of Tangled. hee.

Straight to it, then.

✿ Top left- the life preservers from Steamboat Willie.
✿ Left Mickey- bunzo-esque pattern, reminiscent of the tail of the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland.
✿ Middle- a new pattern (no name yet) I've been playing with that just happens to resemble Mickey's shoes.
✿ Bottom right- a variation of unbatz, modified a little to look like the flower in Minnie's hat.
✿ Right Mickey- a pattern introduced to me by my stepsister (also unnamed thus far... though it looks like a bunch of smurfs sat on a photocopier).

And while we're on the subject of Mickey...
Here's one really good reason to visit Disney World.
Really REALLY good.

In case you were wondering what he looks like, here's a picture of my wonderful husband.
He's a looker, is he not?

And here's some fine art to make you giggle. We took the Disney animation studio tour on the day one of the animators was teaching the tourists how to draw Donald Duck.



We laughed 'til we cried when we looked at these later...

Although it may have been because we delirious from drinking these mysterious (and potentially radioactive) cocktails.

Have a good week!
