Elderly Mickey Mouse: Redesigned To Show His Age

Elderly Mickey Mouse Redesigned

Unfortunately, for most of us, aging is not something we celebrate. We cling to our youth with all we’ve got, and we try hard to keep the natural signs of aging from being exposed to the world. It doesn’t make much sense when you really think about it. Imagine how different our lives would be if we noticed a new line on our face or hands and said, “Woo-Hoo! I have a new line which means I’ve been smiling a lot” or “Yay, since I’m getting older, that means I’m getting wiser.” Nope. Instead, we want to erase all signs that we’ve been around on the earth for a while.

Cartoons and other fictional characters have it much easier. They never age. Do you think the Disney princesses have to work at staying youthful? What about Donald Duck and Popeye? They look as young now as they did when I was five. That’s not fair, right?

Mickey Mouse has looked the same age since he was introduced in 1928. If he were alive today, he’d be having his 84th birthday this year in November. Artist Darick Maasen decided to redesign him to look as if he was really his age. He created this Mickey Mouse from latex and acrylic paint, and then finished him off with a few small Photoshop tweaks. You can learn more about Darick on his website and his facebook. You can also view more pictures from the process here. Mickey, I don’t care what anyone says, you are still adorable to me.
