Da Vinci Mickey Mouse by shalonpalmer Da Vinci Mickey Mouse by shalonpalmer
Da Vinci Mickey Mouse, 2008
Paper Image - 8 x 5 in
Sculpture - 3 3/4 in square
Paper; Polymer clay

Original image is from "Disney: Legacy Edition Art and Images"

I've been meaning to create a Mickey Mouse figure for a friend of mine for quite some time. Every time I look over the options I would get stalled... there are a million Mickey figures in the world and I didn't want to make just another, let alone a knock off of one...

I personally don't have a lot of love for the mouse.... Tailor Mickey and Sorcerer Mickey about cover my likes of the little rodent. Plus, the whole tail thing becomes complicated as it's so thin and I'm reluctant to use just wire.

So, after finding this image I decided it was the best yet. I don't have to worry about his silly always facing front ears where he'll look strange from certain angles... and I really liked the concept.

Lo and behold Vitruvian Mouse. Once finished it will be a color photo print of the left image, with a resin painted cast of the sculpted mouse over top, framed.

For now all that's left is cleaning it up and working out a few of the lines and depth... then molding in silicone and casting in resin.
