I’m not sure how this drawing holds up to that of other two-year-olds, but I’m fairly pleased with the different treatments presented here. On the left we have a microcephalic Mickey Mouse with a wonky set of legs. Despite his troubles, Mickey looks quite happy. In the center we have my personal favorite, a pretty miserable-looking Mickey. Perhaps he’s bummed out by the apathetic Mickey to the right who appears to be pooping out a “T”. Apparently my two-year-old brain thought Mickey Mouse would look so much cooler without arms. You can also see evidence of my attempts to write my name, though it seems I could not yet comprehend the letter “D”.I don’t draw Mickey much anymore. Can’t say I’m a huge fan of his recent work. But in an effort to see if I’ve made any progress since the drawing above, here’s an updated version.
I sketched him as he should look today, without all the cosmetic surgery. Honestly, he is 80 years old. That’s 76 years past the average life span of a mouse. How else is he keeping his looks? Maybe he sleeps in one of those new-fangled-Sta-fresh-Michael-Jackson-Tupperware-sleep chambers. In any case I’m happy with how the updated version came out.
