The artists behind these pins spoke about their work on the pins:
“Being asked to create an officially licensed pin for Disney is an enormous honor. We make it a goal of ours to always visit the enamel pin displays at the Disney Parks in our home state of California, and are always taken aback by the enormous body of work one company has offered to the world of pins. To be specifically asked to create a pin for Mickey Mouse is on a whole other level.
“It’s a double-edged sword, re-interpreting an already iconic and perfect design. We didn’t want to steer too far away from Disney’s artistic expression but also wanted to put our own personal spin on the classic character. We pride ourselves on finding the hidden geometry in all aspects of design and illustration, and it’s clear that Mickey is built with a number of geometric shapes.
“Just draw three perfect circles and most people will be able to see the vague resemblance of Mickey’s head and ears. We took this notion and applied it to our process. Our goal was to celebrate what makes Mickey classic, using a recognizable pose and color scheme, while celebrating the geometry and line work that would otherwise be hidden. We hope we did Mickey justice. It’s the least we could do for such a handsome nonagenarian on his birthday.” Said DKNG.
These are available from 8th February at mondotees.com.
They’ve also announced two new tiki mugs from the Mondo Tee-Ki line, featuring Sorcerer Mickey from 1940’s Disney’s Fantasia and Scrooge McDuck. Future Tee-Ki releases will include characters from The Lion King and Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.
