In honor of Disney100, the artists of the Walt Disney Animation Studios Ink & Paint Department have used traditional ink and paint techniques spanning the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 100-year history to produce a one-of-a-kind piece of art. Each cel was hand-inked and hand-painted using Disney-approved acrylic colors based on an original drawing created by legendary animator, director and Mickey Mouse aficionado, Eric Goldberg.
In “Time Flies: Celebrating 100 Years,” Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse take to the skies above the past and present Disney Studios to honor the 100th anniversary. With the background evolving from black and white to vivid color – just as Disney’s films did – Mickey and Minnie soar over the 100 years of Disney history depicted by three iconic buildings that have been the home of Walt Disney Animation Studios. Their flight begins over The Hyperion Studio, where Mickey and Minnie were first created, then over the Burbank Lot, built after the success of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” and then finally pass over the iconic “Hat Building,” the current home of Walt Disney Animation Studios.
This limited edition was produced in 2022 and is comprised of a general edition of 100, number 1/100 to 100/100, and will be available soon at the Disneyana at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World galleries.
