I never got to draw Mickey Mouse from Runaway Brain while I was at Disney. I always wanted to but Disney was really shy about using this version of Mickey, even tho it's not really Mickey. In fact, my mentor Ralph Kent was adamant and was quick to anger if we even brought up the possibility of using this short for anything. I never understood why as I thought it was a fun cartoon with loads of Easter eggs and brilliant animation. Well, I finally got to do it so I guess I can check it off my bucket list now.
Here are some progress shots of the making of this one.
