"The Band Concert" (1935)-Pencil Concept

Here is one of the better concept drawings of Mickey from "The Band Concert" (1935). This film has many great moments and action "bits" that make it stand out as one of the better early films. It was Donald Duck first major role and Mickey's first Technicolor appearance. There is a fantastic cel similar to this scene which has been on and off the market a number of times in the past two decades. I've tried to acquire it, but it has been a little too expensive. Ah, well.... I guess I'll have to settle for this in my living room.
