For Mondo, the Austin, Texas-based print shop and gallery, Disney is a somewhat of a natural fit. “Mitch Putnam, the co-founder of Mondo, says that "The movies were a big part of our childhood, and are a big part of our lives now.” The same is true for the artists of this new poster series. Artist Flames learned to draw by tracing Uncle Scrooge's beak and Mickey Mouse's ears and still remembers watching the re-released Snow White movie when he was five years old at the Kingsway Theater in Brooklyn, New York. Flames was so taken with the Disney movie that he cut out the newspaper review and folded it into his drawing sketchbook, drawing the bow and outstretched hands again and again. In Flames poster for the Mondo show, he drew Snow White and the woodland creatures emerging from a drafting table, commemorating the illustrators who created the first-ever feature-length animated film.
In 1923, in Kansas City, Missouri, animator Walt Disney created a new short film that was titled Alice's Wonderland. The new film featured child actress Virginia Davis interacting with animated characters. After the bankruptcy in 1923 of his previous firm, called Laugh-O-Gram Studios, Walt Disney moved to Hollywood to join his brother, Roy O. Disney. It was then that film distributor Margaret J. Winkler of M.J. Winkler Productions contacted Disney with her plans to distribute a whole series of Alice Comedies purchased for $1,500 per reel with Walt Disney as a production partner. Brothers Walt and Roy Disney then formed Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio that same year. With more animated films that followed after Alice. In January of 1926, with the completion of the Disney studio on Hyperion Street, the Disney Brothers Studio's name was changed to the Walt Disney Studio. After the demise of the Alice comedies, Walt Disney then developed an all-cartoon series that starred his first original character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, which was then distributed by Winkler Pictures through Universal Pictures.
