    That Sprite vase is incredible! But sadly, way too much money for this household. The prints of the Fab Four are cute. I hope they produce them on a smaller scale, like a postcard or an 8x10 so us poor folk can buy them and enjoy them.

    Re: Coming Soon to the Disney Gallery

    Firstly, did I never notice how much the logo for the Disney Gallery, mirrors Club 33's????


    And secondly, I am getting a tad worried, I am going on the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour next Monday (03/05) and we are supposed to have lunch on the Disney Gallery's balcony, does the closed now/opening March 10 mean they won't do the lunch on the balcony bit??? That was a big part of the attraction to doing the tour, as it is a bit pricey.

    I believe that web site lists the $3,500 price as the price for the original work of art...not a glicee copy.

    The Sprite Vase from Fantasia 2000 is my favorite.. a looong time ago i wanted that to be a tattoo covering my back... i gave up when i realized how much back tattoos hurt and how much it would cost. Now i just have pagan symbols and an American Butterfly back there

    You're right, Shag isn't responsible for his style, but Shag is famous for being a major force in re-introducing the 1950s and 60s popart style.

    I find it interesting that Disney has a lot of this 50s/60s style art for sale now. Commissioning artists like this allow Disney to maintain a whimsical, playful element for their art - but also allows them to tap into the memories of the nostalgic Disneyland fan.

    50s/60s style art like Shag's is definately intended to attract a specific spend-happy segment of Disneyland's fanbase- the nostalgic purists who yearn for Walt-era Disneyland. The playful style of Shag's art also typically transcends gender and the art and subsequent lines of merchandise can be marketed to both men and women. This worked great with the Shag Enchanted Tiki Room line of merch and Disneyland 50th Anniversary merchandise.



    I like this stuff though. The Jody Daily pieces are especially cool, as well as Kevin Kidney, Shag, and Michelle Valigura pieces. The Amanda Vissel Jungle Cruise piece is pretty awesome, too.

    Some nice stuff... Too bad I'm broke!

    I love most of it... but Mickey as Mona Lisa is a little creepy!
    Love the Pan stuff of course!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Yeah, me too. I love Shag art and it bothers me to see him copied all over the place. Wonder why he didn't do this new stuff?
