    My Disneyland Illustrations

    Thought I would share this. It is a short video I put together, featuring some silhouette style illustrations inspired by Disneyland attractions. All the drawings are my own original artwork.

    Lovely little collection of art! Each image really captures the spirit of the attraction or land or moment that it's portraying.

    My personal favorite was probably The Jungle Cruise, I'm a sucker for the ride and those dangerous ear-wiggling, bubble-blowing hippos.

    Re: My Disneyland Illustrations

    At first I was going to say it's kind of Mary Blair-ish but no, it's definitely your own style. It's also unmistakably Disney. Funny how the right topic can make me appreciate something like sihouette art. Nicely done.

    Re: My Disneyland Illustrations

    Well - Disney and Mary Blair are definite influences on my art, as I love the Disney style and the Blair style very much. So a comparison is understandable and actually taken as quite a compliment. Thank you very much. I also have a large overhead map of Disneyland that I have hand drawn. It is so massive that it is imposable to scan into my computer. I have taken a photo of it, but I don't have a good camera and it is very fuzzy. But I will post it anyway so you all can get an idea. When I am able to take a better picture of it, I will post it again in the future.

    Woah! That's so awesome. Even though it's a bit on the blurry side, you can still make out the landmark attractions and icons. Very neat.

    My initial thoughts were also that your designs were a little Mary Blair-esque, a bit on the whimsical side and uniquely stylized, but they still reflect a personal style that's solely yours.

    Re: My Disneyland Illustrations

    thank you - the map is set in the year 1962 - I picked that year because it was the last year that Disneyland still had it's original symmetrical triangle shape, before the railroad berm was expanded out, and I just always thought it looked better from above before it was expanded. Also, a few things are slightly out of place. For example, the Frontierland train station should be lower, but when I originally drew this, about 10 years ago, I did not have access to as many photos of the park from that time period, as are available on the internet these days, so i had to sort-of guess at a few things. I may eventually re-do it with more accurate placement of things.

    Re: My Disneyland Illustrations

    I like the Jungle Cruise one the best (the castle is not far behind though), but all of them most definitely capture the whimsical feel of Disneyland and also have that oh so cool retro style.

    Very nice!

    Re: My Disneyland Illustrations

    Thanks for all the kind words everyone - i was sort of freaking out when I fist posted the video on Youtube, because only a couple hours after I posted it, someone marked it with a thumbs down, "do not like" and I was feeling bad that someone did that. They offered no explanation. And it hurt my feelings a bit. So you all have made me feel much much better.
