I was asked to be a part of the very first show at the Disney Wonderground Gallery in Downtown Disney (right next to Disneyland, CA!). I was asked to do a Mickey themed piece and a Pixar theme piece, and I got to choose which Pixar film to do. I finished these waaaaaay back in February and I can finally show them to you!
The grand opening of the gallery will be on June 9, in Downtown Disney.
I'll be there!!!
From 11am-1pm I'll be there to sign my custom painted Vinylmation 95 (which is top secret until then), and say hello!
I love classic cartoony Mickey, especially the rubber hose era, where things were allowed to get super weird and surreal. They're so fun to watch. I didn't want to stray too far from that. But also, pink. Lots of pink.
I wanted to focus on Sid for my Toy Story piece. Did you ever know a kid like him?? I didn't, but I DID go to people's houses were it was obvious they hadn't redecorated in about 30 years. That gross avocado green from Sid's house really stuck with me...and the shag carpet...and the crazy wallpaper...yipes. I always liked the mutant toys lots, too. They're fun and sad at the same time.
Both these pieces are acrylic on board, and framed, and ready to go!
I'm not exactly sure just yet, but there may be t-shirts and prints of these paintings available at the gallery, amongst other things!
Should be a pretty good day. Hope some of you can make it out!
