This just in from Are Myklebust:
[Hi Didier!

Some of the first cartoons Walt made as a young boy, was copies of the cartoons and comic strips in the American socialist newspaper “Appeal to Reason” that his father, Elias Disney, subscribed to.

You can find some information about this newspaper here.

And further you can find some information about this newspapers main cartoonist, Ryan Walker (1870 – 1932), including examples of his work, here.

And finally you will find an exampel of young Walt’s own early drawings here.]

Walt's drawings are already marked by the Disney cuteness. Those figures are rounded, sweet and kind of innocent. How lovely!
