Disney Parks Blog has announced the addition of two new artists to Disney’s artist series, which reimagines Mickey Mouse on various apparel. Artists from around the world submitted their designs for consideration in this series. Designs by Deborah Salles and Rafael Faria were chosen and their artwork can now be found on gender-neutral, streetwear-inspired items at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World, and on shopDisney.com.
First up, let’s learn about Deborah Salles, who has been drawing since the age of 8. After pursuing graphic design and illustration in college, she landed work at The Walt Disney Company Brazil as a product designer. Having a Mickey Mouse redesign project recognized has been a dream come true for her.
Deborah reimagined Mickey in her creation of this Mickey Mouse backpack with a cute allover design featuring a wide-eyed Mickey with a variety of facial expressions. It’s perfect for school, a day at the parks, or just running around town! Now that fall is upon us and the weather is cooling down, the Mickey Mouse fleece pullover with a bold black and white design is the perfect comfy item to keep you warm!
This first Mickey Mouse T-shirt features Mickey expressing his many moods with different facial expressions, while the second Mickey Mouse T-shirt has a bold black and white design, a wide-eyed Mickey, and different colored sleeves. Which one is more your style?
Rafael Faria is another designer and artist whose work we’re loving. Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Rafael has worked for the visual communications segment for 17 years and has dedicated his time to creating exclusive and memorable projects at The Walt Disney Company Brazil. His passion goes beyond paper, shaping 2-D and 3-D creations ranging from creatures, mountains, valleys, and lakes, drawing inspiration from nature. His fresh take on Mickey Mouse is downright electrifying!
Prepare to stand out when you carry this vibrant and dynamic Mickey Mouse backpack. Rafael has incorporated a reimagined Mickey into this colorful urban-style artwork, blending a contemporary style with an ’80s sensibility to create a bag that puts the fun in functional. The Mickey Mouse hooded pullover uses that same urban style to add some color to whatever you’re wearing. And no, you don’t need 3D glasses for this Mickey Mouse T-shirt. It’s just Rafael’s optical trickery! This fun and colorful design will have you rubbing your eyes and exclaiming, “Oh boy!”
Rafael displays his love of bright colors in another vibrant Mickey Mouse T-shirt. The colorful grid design has a musical theme, featuring chromatic musical instruments and microphones, so it’s sure to hit the right note with Mickey fans.
