Mickey Mouse is and always has been an iconic character in American history. I've seen more and more of Mickey lately. Whether it be on t-shirts, bags, sweatshirts... Mickey is back-in-action more than ever! And I love it.
Last sumer while living in LA I was able to learn about the evolution of the cartoon of Mickey and how the cartoon character made his big break. Quite interesting, I must say!
Mickey was first drawn and created by famous cartoonist, Ub Iwerks, around 1925. He is also famous for drawing the other iconic cartoon... Oswald the Rabbit!
I was lucky enough to have dinner with his granddaughter, Leslie Iwerks, a famous documentary director, at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles with some friends. This is when my interest for Mickey Mouse had made it's return. I loved hearing the entire process and progress of Mickey the cartoon. I thought it was so interesting to hear that he was so much more than a Disney character on vintage t-shirts from the past. He's also more than just that little guy who flirted with Minnie on Saturday mornings in cartoons I watched with my Dad.
But here I am again - Regressed and obsessed with all things Mickey ~ More specifically, these fun indie-twist on the mouse ears! They are a fun and ironically edgy accessory to be a great topic of conversation anywhere you go. I would love some some with sequins all over them for Christmas!
Go get a little mousey; thank me later! ;)
