    I definitely dig your down to basics style - have you thought about doing paper cutouts of these? I think they would be remarkable and your illustration style already makes for easy cutting - it won't be quick, but the end result could be something truly special.

    Those paper cutouts are pretty cool too. That's a good style.

    Well, that's YouTube for ya. I've got a few vids up too with thousands of thumbs up and a few thumbs down and I've often wondered what the beef was with those holdouts? It's even weirder when it's the ONLY feedback you get.

    Decades ago someone interviewed Merv Griffin about how he deals with negative fan mail and his answer was "I just throw it out and don't read it." Sensible advice, trolling and griefing have been around long before the internet.

    Very cleaver - I might think about this.

    I know there are some people that are not going to like my art or taste in music etc, but it was right off the bat, and before any good response came. Oh well. I know it is nothing to get worried about.


    I might do some more illustrations in this same style. Are there any particular attractions anyone would want to see? I was thinking about doing some of the more current attractions in this same vintage style. Would be interesting to see Star Tours done up this style for example. Or Indiana Jones - I didn't really do any of the indoor attractions before, so that would be interesting. Any ideas?

    Perhaps HM and POTC? I think that some of the characters and iconic scenes from those two attractions would lend themselves beautifully to this style of art. I'd also love to see designs inspired by past Disneyland attractions, like Adventures Thru Inner Space or Mine Train Through Nature's Wonderland.

    And about that "thumbs down", I know it's disappointing when that's the first piece of feedback that you receive, but unfortunately, people on YouTube tend to be trigger-happy with the dislike button, and you can never know why. What's important is that you know that we all enjoy your artwork and that you continue to enjoy creating and sharing it.

    Bah, don't worry about the thumbs down. They were probably searching YouTube for how to fix a clogged toilet and saw disney silhouettes instead and the thumbs down was a internet style knee jerk reaction.

    Toontown area
    Natures Wonderland
    Golden Hoseshoe
    Big Thunder
    Swiss Family Tree House
