One of his drawings-ca. 1917-1918
Oswald the Lucky Rabbit promo poster

Earliest know drawing of Mickey Mouse - 1928

Birds of a feather artwork
Snow White Story Sketch
Mickey Mouse's from the 1930's
Jiminy Cricket character model statue -1940
WWII promo poster
1955 autopica car from Disneyland
The original concept for the Fantasyland Castle-1955
Epcot concept art
Original story sketch from Mart Poppins (1964)

  7. We just got back from Disney World and they had a little museum about Walt Disney at one of the parks. It was really interesting. I could have spent hours in there if I would have had more time. I love the Mickey sketches you've shared!

  11. I thought it was a big score for San Francisco when this museum became part of the Presidio.
