To celebrate Mickey Mouse’s 90th, we asked some of our favourite creators to reflect on Mickey’s relevance and craft a unique item inspired by the character.

For Melbourne artist Beci Orpin, the long-term collateral of being a visual artist is that each work forms part of a personal timeline. In this way, Orpin can trace her influences in reverse.

“One of my all-time favourite influences is the movie Fantasia,” she says. “That process of taking all your influences and producing it in a way that is only you, is originality. The more you work, the more you see how your style develops.”

In the video below, watch Orpin working on her contribution and discussing the nature of originality.
