Daily Doodle : The Sorcerers Apprentice

Today's chosen fairy tale for Twitter's Daily Doodle (@Daily__Doodle) was The Sorcerers Apprentice. Obviously the minute you hear thjose words an image of Mickey Mouse in a wizard's cloak springs to mind but that's the trouble with Disney...they somehow turn everything into their own. The original story is pretty much what Disney took for the famous Mickey Mouse segment in "Fantasia". A young wizard plays with magic whilst the old Wizard is away and all hell breaks lose as the magic becomes uncontrollable. Buckets and brooms run wild as the yound aprentice attempts to cut corners and tidy up the easy way. I chose to depict the tale just as he launches into the magic and the brooms spring into life.
