"On Ice" (1935) [3 of 4] - Pencil of Mickey Skating

Merry Christmas and Season's Greetings!

Since I will be away for part of December, I thought this would be a good opportunity to post some Christmas/Holiday related art. To see other holiday related items, select "Category-Holiday" from the "Content by Category" list on the right.

Here's a nice image of Mickey skating. Good action. Nice facial expression. AND I like the rough circles drawn to help the animator construct the image.

When we showed the entire sheet, the image of Mickey just got lost. Since I don't like trimming any historic art, we decided to frame the entire sheet and cut a section out to provide more focus on Mickey. I would normally have an opening that provided some "lead room" on the left side of Mickey, but there was a stain on the sheet, hence the left-sided cut. We chose an "ice colored" frame to help communicate the Winter atmosphere.
