Mickey Climbs The Mountain While Pete Waits In The Clouds
These were some of the first "Mail Pilot" sheets I picked up. When I looked at them, I thought it might be interesting to frame them together -- with Pete lying in wait for Mickey to emerge over the mountain. I liked the result and had the piece on my office wall for years.
Probably one of the best bits I've seen is in the Pete's sheet where he uses an anchor to keep his plane from flying away while Pete hides in the cloud waiting for Mickey.
