A few months back I fell in love with the flat, graphic work of Josh Agle, also known as Shag.  His use of vibrant colors and simplified humans really grabbed my attention and I felt a great desire to do some illustrations of my own.  I started playing around with character designs that took inspiration from Shag’s mid-century style, and eventually ended up with both a style of my own and a wealth of confidence that I could create artwork as beautiful as his.

Here are my five illustrations depicting Walt Disney relaxing and having a blast in HIS park, Disneyland, before opening the doors to the guests.  Each piece places Walt in one of his five original lands: Main Street U.S.A., Fantasyland, Adventureland, Frontierland, and Tomorrowland.

One day I hope to make artwork or design consumer products for the Disney parks and be among the ranks of such excellent artists as Shag, Kevin Kidney, and Jody Daily.
