Behold Mickey Mouse in his very first role as Steamboat Willie. Ub Iwerks was considered by many to be Walt Disney's oldest friend, and spent most of his career with Disney. He was responsible for the distinctive style of the earliest Disney animated cartoons, and was also responsible for designing Mickey Mouse. We have had many of these beautiful vintage drawings of Mickey over the years and are always looking to acquire more. If you have a Steamboat Willie drawing in your collection and wish to sell it on, please let us know as we are regularly buying vintage Disney drawings of Mickey Mouse and all other characters.
