A poster I designed that we had printed for a Disney Parks Blog giveaway. 3 spot colors including metallic bronze on heavy creme stock.
These latest print designs are now available in my shop and were realized through a collaboration with my wife (Threehaus). We were inspired by vintage racing and the fascination that boys seem to have with cars and racing. We have two boys, so it wasn’t too hard to see. My wife and I are both designers, so it was fun to finally come together on a project like this and introduce Ohno the race car driver to the world. The archive quality prints look great with any decor and are an especially great fit in YOUR little racer’s room. Enjoy!
I love looking at this original layout drawing of the proposed Disneyland from 1953. Fun to see a proposed Lilliputian Land and Mickey Mouse Club Island. This was included in the original Disneyland Prospectus (proposal) if your interested in reading through it, you can download this PDF Disneylandoriginalprospectus Enjoy!
The idea behind this year’s holiday campaign revolves all around the name of Mickey’s Christmas party – which you can see in a new VERY merry logo and over-the-top merry scenes. Since the party is a classic Christmas party at the Magic Kingdom, the style and tone of the campaign – from the hand-drawn logo to a traditional animated short – was inspired by the classic Disney shorts and vintage holiday greeting cards.
The illustrations also used a vintage style to match the animation and were used in a variety of media:
It was really fun to get to work with some very talented folks on this campaign. My creative team of super talent on this one was Diana, Brad, and Justin, who thought this whole thing up and saw it to fruition. Big thanks to Duck studios and some of our very talented animator friends for helping us bring back the classic Disney style 2-D animation of the late 30’s and 40’s. Also Todd Bright, who helped us do some amazing vintage feeling illustrations for the billboards and campaign imagery. And of course the amazing Dana Tanamachi who hand lettered and designed our Mickey’s Very Merry logo this year!
