I will be returning to WonderGround Gallery on Saturday, September 19th to debut some brand new art – including the latest Hipster Mickey piece. I’ll be appearing along side fellow artists Kristen Tercek and John Coulter from 3:00pm – 5:00pm.
“Monorail Mouse” captures Hipster Mickey near the Submarine lagoon trying to catch a selfie with the iconic Monorail speeding by in the background. “Courting Minnie” is a romantic piece with Mickey and Minnie all decked out for a night at the parks. For those of you who couldn’t make it the D23 Expo this year, “Kingdom of Cute” is now available at WonderGround Gallery.
Hope to see you at this special event.
WonderGround Gallery is located in the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort.
The Shop Disney Parks App is now available for download on iTunes. If shopping is a big part of going to Disney Parks for you, then this is the app you’ve been waiting for. Featuring merchandise found throughout the parks and resorts, the app finally brings the in-park shopping experience to your smart phone. You can scan items to find out, price, availability and where to find it in the park. I’ve only taken a quick look at the app so I’m sure there’s much to discover.
You can now purchase a lot of my merchandise that was previously only available in the parks. To find out what’s available, simply enter “Maruyama” in the search field to see a nice selection of merchandise. Other items can be found by doing a character search. Not everything is currently available but take a look around and see what you find. Some items might require a little exploring.
You can download the app for free. Take a look and see what you think. Would love to hear your feedback. I’m excited that more of the merchandise is available to those who can’t always make it to the parks.
My thanks to everyone who entered to win a button set. Appreciate all your kind comments and for helping me get the word out about my D23 Expo Signings. Remember, if you’re at the Expo this weekend, find me to get some free buttons.

I was honored when Dave Perillo invited me to participate in the latest show he’s curating. Celebrating the many worlds of Mattel, the tribute will open on Friday, August 14th at Gallery 1988 West. He’s put together an impressive roster of artist and I am humbled to be included. I’ve created three new pieces for the show and can’t wait to share them with you next week. I will have 10 prints of each piece available for purchase at the gallery. I hope to be there opening night.
Gallery 1988 West is located at 7308 Melrose Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90046 – West of La Brea
