Deep Southern California roots bring Vans and Disney back together again, this time, to celebrate 90 years of Mickey Mouse. Honoring the optimistic attitude and loveable nature of Mickey Mouse on his birthday, Vault by Vans and Disney collaborate with four iconic artists – John Van Hamersveld, Mister Cartoon, Geoff McFetridge and Taka Hayashi, to create one-of-a-kind artwork featuring the beloved Disney “True Original.”
To bring a minimalistic and surreal illustrative style to the collection, Vault by Vans and Disney worked with Geoff McFetridge, Canadian designer, illustrator, and animator based in Los Angeles. McFetridge’s work intuitively ignores creative boundaries and spans a broad range of art media. The versatility and simplicity in his work is balanced by the use of elegant line drawings and paintings. His design captures Mickey Mouse in a unique pattern, highlighting his iconic colors – black, red and yellow.
