‘Happiest Hipster’ Debuts at WonderGround Gallery

Display1

On Saturday, July 20th, I returned to  WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort to launch a new series of Hipster Mickey pieces. Happiest Hipster On Earth debuted with a bunch of new merchandise and art options. Check out the new messenger bag, postcard, t-shirt, magnet and a stylish new hat that sports the first Hipster Mickey pin! Finally making it’s debut is the Hipster Mickey iPhone cover (5 & 4s). I’ve had so many requests for this one and it’s been in the works for quite a while so I was so happy to see it in on the shelf. Limited edition giclees in three sizes and deluxe prints are also available. We’ve gone to great lengths to offer several options of this new image so you can find the perfect one for your collection. Keep in mind this is the first in a new series of Hipster Mickey images that will be released every three months and will feature Mickey in front of several iconic Disneyland locations. Right now, you can catch a sneak peek of the next image in the series here.

In addition to the Hipster line, I also debuted two new images for the POP FUSION show – A World of Cute (Deluxe print) and Love in Bloom (Limited edition giclee and deluxe print). There’s a ton of great merchandise now available – including a sparkly women’s tank – with more on the way so stay tuned.

I’d like to once again thank the great folks at WonderGround who make these events run smoothly. I am so grateful for their kindness and generosity. They make every event special and I can’t thank them enough for their efforts. It’s an honor to be a part of this very special gallery. Hope they’ll have me back again soon!

While I was there, I also had the pleasure of speaking with the great folks at The Disney Examiner. They came by and talked to me about my work and inspirations for the artwork on display. They just posted a very generous article and video on their site and I hope you can take a look. It’s a fantastic site run by the kindest, most sincere group of people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Thanks for coming out, guys!

New Hipster Mickey Merchandise At WonderGround Gallery

I have been so pleased and pleasantly surprised by the reception my original Hipster Mickey piece has received since debuting at WonderGround Gallery last June (2012). Seeing the little guy on mugs, t-shirts and bags has been a dream come true for this long-time Disney fan.

That dream continues to grow with today’s announcement of the all-new Hipster Mickey line debuting at the gallery in July. This is beyond anything I could have imagined.  “Happiest Hipster On Earth” (Above) will be the first in a new series of images featuring Mickey Mouse in all his Hipster glory!  I am so excited for these new pieces and so grateful for the opportunity to showcase them at this very cool gallery.In support of this new line, I will be appearing at the Gallery on Saturday July 20th from 5-7 PM. Come by and check out all the new merch!

Event information available here.

Thank you to all the fans of Hipster Mickey. I am so appreciative of your support and kind words. It’s almost too much for this Disney fan boy! I look forward to celebrating with everyone who can make it out to the gallery for the event! See ya real soon!

Good Vs. Evil At The WonderGround Gallery

The powers of good and evil have taken over the WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District, Disneyland® Resort. I was so excited to return to the gallery on Saturday (Dec 15) for the opening of this brand new show. It’s always a blast to be a part of the festivities. It’s inspiring, humbling and exciting to meet the many Disney fans who come out to these event. They are always fun to talk to and so enthusiastic about the artwork.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate their kind words and generosity. My sincere thanks to everyone who came out to the show to say hello. And a special shout-out to the great folks who purchased my Pinocchio (or “Pokeynose”) giclee.

The other great part of these gatherings is the chance to mingle with some fantastic artists. I’ve admired many of these talents for some time and it’s so great to stand beside them for this show. It’s always inspiring to hear their stories and experiences. So great to see Noah, Michelle Romo, Martin Hsu and Sean Chao once again. Thrilled that I finally got to meet Miss Mindy, Stephanie Buscema, Kristin Tercek, Ming Ong and Jackie Huang.

As always, the great folks at Disney made this a day to remember. Thanks to everyone who makes these events and this Gallery possible. That includes the wonderful staff at the gallery. Your endless energy and excitement for the art is such a big part of the WonderGround experience and I thank you for your efforts. Also, a shout-out to the Disneyland Ambassadors who are just so fun to talk to. I am honored to be a part of this gallery and so thankful for the experience.

There are some really fantastic pieces and merchandise in this new show. If you’re in the area, please stop by and check it out.

To see it and the rest of the Beauty and The Beast piece, come out to the gallery this weekend and say hello.
