Art of Epic Mickey
I was really happy to be asked by Disney to write the text for Art of Epic Mickey after working on the game. I take zero credit for how cool this book is, I’m just doing the work of tracing and unpacking what the game’s artists put together, all the original art that first created a sensation when it leaked onto the Internet.
For Disney enthusiasts it’s a hilarious, occasionally shocking re-imagining of the Disney canon – a lot of it made it into the game, but there’s plenty that didn’t. As Warren said, they took it all as far as they could, then pulled back when they absolutely had to – but everything they thought of shows up here. And it goes deep into the back catalogue – they’ve got the familiar works, Small World and Peter Pan and Snow White and such, but you’ll also see references to The Black Hole, Atlantis: the Lost Empire, and all the classic early animated shorts. Thrilling, geeky, intriguing stuff.
