Luxury Kiss Original by Emily Crook

Emily was born in 1996 and studied Graphic Design at Middlesex University, but always had a passion for art. Upon graduating Emily changed her career path and became dedicated to creating art and finding her unique artistic vision. ­Emily takes her inspiration from fashion, culture, pop and street art and then merges these with icons from popular culture which she grew up surrounded by.

Emily has always followed street art and this takes influence in her backgrounds. The backgrounds are all created using spray paint and hand cut stencils and then acrylic paints are used to hand paint her chosen icon over the top. Finally Emily’s love for fashion comes through many of the pieces as the her icons will usually be found holding shopping bags or be wearing luxury brands.

Mickey Mouse is a cartoon character and the mascot of The Walt Disney Company. He was created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks at the Walt Disney Studios in 1928. An anthropomorphic mouse who typically wears red shorts, large yellow shoes, and white gloves, Mickey is one of the world’s most recognizable characters.

Created as a replacement for a prior Disney character, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Mickey first appeared in the short Plane Crazy, debuting publicly in the short film Steamboat Willie (1928), one of the first sound cartoons. He went on to appear in over 130 films, including The Band Concert (1935), Brave Little Tailor (1938), and Fantasia (1940). Mickey appeared primarily in short films, but also occasionally in feature-length films. Ten of Mickey’s cartoons were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film, one of which, Lend a Paw, won the award in 1942. In 1978, Mickey became the first cartoon character to have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Minnie Mouse is one of the anthropomorphic cartoon characters created by Ub Iwerks and Walt Disney. She and Mickey Mouse were first drawn by Iwerks in 1928. The Mickey Mouse comic strip story “The Gleam” (published January 19 – May 2, 1942) by Merrill De Maris and Floyd Gottfredson first gave her full name as Minerva Mouse, although this is seldom used.
