You'll have to work for your prize. Everyone who leaves a comment on this post and can tell me one of the places on which either the 16-day and 11-day countdown pictures by my son are based on within WDW, I will put your names into a hat and allow my son (with the pixie dust) to draw the winner. What is the prize, you ask? You will receive your choice of one of my EPCOT collage series prints. Here are the choices:
You can click any of the images above to view a larger version of the drawing. The print, of course, will not have the "watermark" on it. It will be a 9" x 12" print of the original drawing on acid-free Bristol paper. Once the winner has been drawn, they will be notified and can e-mail me with their mailing address and to let me know which print they would like. I want to give those who would like to enter some time to do that, so I will be picking a winner on Wednesday, September 22nd.

It just dawned on me that I never posted a straight-on shot of Cinderella's Castle after I had my final drawing scanned... so here it is (to view larger size click on the image):
"Where Dreams Live" - graphite on paper
And one of these days when I get to Anaheim... just to take a photo, of course ;) ...I hope to do Sleeping Beauty's as well.

This is a very quick pen and ink sketch I did last year of the famous picture of Walt walking under the castle gate. There are many reasons that I love this picture. I love thinking about what Walt could have been thinking... I am sure his wheels were turning about something new at the park. Also, the fact that he is actually dwarfed by the size of the castle gate really is symbolic of how big his vision truly was. It was so much bigger and much more far-reaching than he could possibly ever know. And we are so fortunate that he wouldn't let his dream die!
I am looking forward to getting back to more of my Disney sketches now that my spring art show season in over.

(These pictures were actually taken by my oldest son, who is developing quite a way with a camera.)
As for this last picture... it reminds me how saddened I was in January to find that the Norway Viking ship has been dismantled and now lies in pieces strewn here and there opposite the restrooms and Kringla outdoor eating area. The beautifully carved masthead seemed to be just another addition to the shrubbery. I wonder what was behind this decision?
