It's that busy time of year...

and I have been working on commissioned artwork steadily since Thanksgiving. But, I had to come and do a little reminiscing from our Disney trip in September. I haven't had a chance to do any Disney artwork lately since I am working on commissions. So, I am going to share some more photos from our recent trip. This was one of my favorite discoveries of the trip... some of the original concept art and models for EPCOT.

Magical Architecture

As you may be able to tell from my artwork, I have an affinity for architecture and particularly Disney architecture. Here are some shots I took on my last trip as references for potential drawings.

Cinderella's Castle

The work in progress... now complete. And in the photo below you will note that I used a very Disney effect... can you guess?

Yes, it's "forced perspective." Appropriate, eh?

This terrific find... an EPCOT mini-museum displaying all the original plans for each pavilion with samples of some of the original costumes and a wonderful short video playing the "We're gettin' ready for you..." opening theme music.

Oh Horizons... how I miss you!

The new ending of Spaceship Earth... welcome to your future!
