Say Cheese!

I've been lucky enough to work with a bunch of classic Disney and Pixar characters over the years. It's definitely one of the highlights of the job and the sheer amount of characters we have keeps things interesting. I mainly work on all the Pixar and live-action film properties so the chances to work with Mickey are slim to none. Fortunately, a project came along where we got to reinterpret that classic Mickey pose that's on all those vintage tees. I based it on the first random thought that popped into my head so I made his feet into cheese and had him take a big bite outta his left foot. There's not much of a concept here other than I was hungry at the time.

Anyways, enough about me, how hot is the model, Kathy?!?!? She definitely makes my Mickey look a whole lot better. In fact, you're probably like "what Mickey??" Thanks to my coworker/photo enthusiast Ryan for the awesome shots. Check out the rest of his wonderful work at RyPhoto . Cheese!!!

Hey Tan,
Thanks for the shout out. I appreciate that. We all love your work, and I was happy to help promote it.

Love the concept! Are we going to see "Cheese-Feet Mickey" in stores anytime soon?

Vivian Chiu said...

Haha cheese! Your work is awesome! Hope to become something like that one day :)
I'm making a blog that talks about animation around the world, as well as other random art related subjects. It'd be an honor if you had the time to visit!

I forget Larry. I feel light-headed and all warm and fuzzy inside. Rollerskates!!

I completely agree Anonymous!

Thanks again Ry! It's my favorite post of all time thanks to your awesome photography (and Kathy, of course)

Hiya Craig! They made these shirts as a giveaway during Licensing Show. But I believe he'll also be part of a Mickey product line based on all the different interpretations the Disney artists created. I'll keep you posted.

Aww, thanks Vivian! Cool blog! You're off to a great start. Definitely keep immersing yourself in all types of art and animation and always keep a sketchbook with you at all times.

Wow, nice shirt Eric. I'd love to own that design, since my favorite food is cheese. If my foot was made out of it, I'd take a bite too :)
Although, I don't think I could wear it quite like the model...I wish!
