    The story behind new art pieces and their artist

    Friday night I visited my friend Christina who works Disneyana while visiting she pointed out two new art pieces that they just recently. The first was a painting of one of the elephants from the dumbo attraction and the other was of one of the teacups (the yellow one). She asked me to guess who the painter was and I couldn't even think. Ends up the artist is a man by the name of Tom Wilson, but we all know him better as Biff from the "Back To The Future" trilogy. Now we know what happened to him. Anyways, it ends up that he spent most of his life on the east coast and never visited Disney Land. He moved to California and was amazed by Disneyland and has been a Disney enthuist ever since. I guess these painting are a homage to that enthuisasm. Check these paintings out at Disneyana, they are beautiful.

    Hello? Mcfly? Biff Tannen can paint?

    "Well lookey what we have here"

    I was shopping in Disneyana on Main Street and one of the cast members shared this info on some paintings we were looking at.

    The Dumbo painting is done by Thomas F. Wilson, who is famous for playing Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future trilogy. The store had a painting of a Tea cup as well. Really nice art work.
    Here's the link.

    He's not bad at all! Will wait for the cells to come out, but would really like a Teacup in green!

    Yea they are really well done. Apparently Wilson has been a fan for a very long time.
