Quick on the heels of the report from LP that Bret Iwan was named the new voice of Mickey, we eagerly followed up and made the connection to his now former position as a Hallmark illustrator, another tidbit that’s widely been reported since.
We are now pleased to present you with samples of some of Bret’s own illustrations of Mickey, for whom Bret Iwan has professed a life-long love of as well as visiting the Disneyland Resort and it absolutely shows through both his talent and his lifestyle. While I am in possession of many different works of art that show off Mr. Iwan’s broad range, for obvious reasons, I’m focusing on the Disney elements.
For those wondering just how many projects Bret has been involved with to date, while I do not have an answer as of yet, I can definitively say that Bret had gone out to visit Disney Character Voices, International back in April (which is prior to Wayne Allwine’s passing) and has since moved to the Los Angeles area.
We’ve actually managed to learn a lot about Bret over the past day or so in our research. Some of these facts we’re holding on to, but we learned for example that Mr. Iwan graduated from the prestigious Ringling College of Art and Design in 2004.
