Alternate Mickeys by Ward KimballIllustration // Friday, 27 Jul 2012
'Ward’s the one man who works for me I call a genius,' Walt Disney once noted. Ward Kimball was a core animator at the Walt Disney Company between the 1930s and 1970s and was especially noted for his wilder animation style. That eccentricity is visible here in one of Ward's model sheets, where Mickey is drawn in a variety of guises ranging from a flasher to Spielberg's E.T. Check out more of Ward's work on the 365 Days of Ward Kimball.
