1931 Disney Staff Caricatures & Profiles – pt 1

Mickey Mouse 1931 Motion Picture Daily

Half by accident, half by definite purpose, I stumbled upon an auction of Disney memorabilia and in it was included a page of a magazine called Motion Picture Daily.  It had caricatures of Disney staffers from the early ’30s.  After a little internet research, I was able to locate high rez pix of not only that page, but its adjoining pages.  What I was able to reap was not caricatures (by Disney artist Jack King) of the 1931 Disney staff, but also brief autobiographical artist profiles that give a window into the youthful and playful behavior of these young creatives.  I’ll post a few of these over the course of the next few days.
