KImball was one of the Academy Award winning chief animators on Disney's classic films, one of the group of animators known as the Nine Old Men. He brought Mickey Mouse to life along with other classic Disney characters. With ink and watercolor pencil, Kimball has drawn a smiling full length Mickey Mouse dressed as The Sorcerer's Apprentice, bucket in hand. Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice became the iconic symbol of the Disney film "Fantasia" released in 1940. Mickey measures approximately 5 inches from tip of hat to top of toe and about the same across. The drawing is accomplished on a 9 x 12 inch stiff sketch sheet. The artist has inscribed and signed, "To..Ward Kimball." Condition: The image is in fine condition; slight bend in lower right corner of the board, two mounting remnants on verso.
