This subtle Minnie Mouse shirt just arrived in our new shipment of Desigual, which has partnered with Disney to produce both the Minnie T-shirt and an earlier Mickey shirt for men (see below).

Angel Vancouver carries one of the most extensive collections of Desigual in Vancouver B.C., for both men and women. We are an authorized dealer of Desigual, which is based in Barcelona and produces 1,000 new pieces every season.

Also, Angel is taking orders on custom hand-painted shirts for Christmas. Call (604) 681-0947 or email me at jackie@angelpaint.com

By the way, I met Walt Disney. He was a patron of the Chouinard Art School I attended in Los Angeles in the 1960s — Walt would come to the school to see what kind of art the students were making (he never saw some of the lewd drawings some students did of Mickey and Minnie). A few students also worked at Disneyland in the art department. One of them worked on the It’s a Small World exhibit and told me he made the Mountie have rosy cheeks because I had rosy cheeks — he thought all Canadians had rosy cheeks because they were out skiing in the mountains all the time.

One student worked in one of the Disney studios  that made all the characters for Disneyland — the studio was called Retlaw (Walter spelled backwards) and Walt came in one day drinking a cup of coffee, which he didn’t quite finish. After Walt left, the student took resin to seal the coffee in the cup forever. It’s probably still in the Disney archives somewhere.

I’ve included Andy Warhol’s Mickey Mouse print at the bottom. Did you know Warhol made a surf movie in California in the 1960s that was never released but will be shown for the first time in January 2013?
