Subject:Japanese Ink on Silk 1944

I've had these drawings for a few years. Both are about 13"x23" ink on silk. One is signed and dated 1944, but I can't make out the signature. The weird part is the old Mickey Mouse (Steamboat Willie) that appears on it. One has a water stain in the corner. I got these from a student of mine who said they were hidden behind the wall in an attic that was being torn down. Both drawings had stickers on them from the Joseph Sartor Galleries in Dallas, TX. How they ended up in Eastern KY, I have no idea. The drawings are very detailed, featuring Mt. Fuji, samurai warrior and geisha girl. Anyone with any ideas about these?
