|Mark Henn and his official 90th piece|
3 weeks later I met the same wonderful person and was about to show them the image on my phone of the almost finished painting when they shared that they had hired “a well known animator” to do the piece. I was shocked and beyond disappointed.
|My tribute to a special little fellow|
My painting featured Mickey sitting on one of the old Hyperion era director's chairs on a mockup set from the old Mickey Mouse Club. He's holding an iphone as a nod to his bridging decades of innovation right up to the current class of electronics. It may not be the official 90th portrait of the mouse but it at least will be seen in public. The original painting and limited edition prints will be available for purchase! I’m beyond thrilled, Mickey has been and continues to be a large part of my life! Thank you Mickey and D23!
