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.

The Chase – New WonderGround Art

Do you love Disney’s Alice In Wonderland as much as I do? If so, you’ll love “The Chase” – a new print I did for the Good vs. Evil show at the WonderGround Gallery, Downtown Disney® District, Disneyland® Resort.  ‘Alice’ is one of my favorite Disney films and I wanted to include as many of the fantastic characters as I could in this fun piece.I couldn’t get them all in there but many of my favorites made the cut – including one of the adorable oyster babies and a mome-rath.

This image is currently available as a deluxe print and sold exclusively at WonderGround. Check it out the next time you’re at Disneyland!

The image above is a small peek at my Beauty and the Best piece I did for this show. “A Girl In The Castle” features several favorite characters from the film and will be available as a limited edition, numbered and signed giclee.  I also have one more piece that has yet to be revealed.
