Drawings From Imagineers: John Hench


Most of the images I put up are just reference or supporting images. So, I thought I'd sprinkle in something original - I'll be putting up a "Drawings from Imagineers" post from time to time.

I have a sketchbook with drawings from other artists that I have either met or had the chance to work with over the years. While attending the life drawing workshops at Imagineering, I was lucky enough to meet John Hench. He was kind enough to contribute this to my book. He was very keen on doing Mickey in different styles and mediums... this one showing the gesture and flow of the character design... Enjoy!

Is it just me or does it seem like Mickey's ears have been shrinking in the past years to make him seem more like a little boy instead of a mouse? Pinocchio must be jealous.

John Hench was truly amazing!

I can't imagine where the parks would be right now without his influence.

Very roughly, it means "Mickey [is] on the move! Sweet!" (or some equal exclamation...the word actually means "healthy").
