Finding Mickey: Exploring the Art of Bret Iwan, Voice of Mickey Mouse

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.

Bret Iwan Named as New Voice of Mickey Mouse

Laughing Place has noted that the program for Feld Entertainment’s newest Disney on Ice production, Celebrations!, has listed Bret Iwan as a voice talent and has also dedicated the show to the memory of former Mickey Mouse voicer and Disney Legend, Wayne Allwine.

Also linked to in the news item is a link to the studios where Iwan has recorded some material for Mickey.

So what does Bret do when he’s not providing the voice for the world’s most famous animated personality? Evidently he is/was also an illustrator for Hallmark and according to this irresistibly cute story from Hallmark about Bret visiting a school, he’s been a fan for years, drawing and voicing Mickey for the amused students.
