This is not DIRECTLY Disneyland related, but is still super cool Disney awesomeness…
Last year I visited Pixar, when UP was still the newest release. I spotted this Jeep in the parking lot and couldn’t resist snapping a picture of the sweet “Ellie Badge” spare tire cover!
Remember that time I went to pixar and saw this? Ugh take me back.
This post has far too many notes. Why. Why now?
Let’s just say I got some awesome birthday presents #tikiroom50th #pele #shag #kevinkidney #jodydaily #disneyland #disney
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.

Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room 50th Anniversary merchandise by Shag.
We are buying the shirt, the postcards, and the two art prints. I am so excited to get these. Wish I had enough money to get all the Shag items.
Happy 50th anniversary Enchanted Tiki Room!
This post is a day late, but I wanted to share some fun tiki artwork from the Disney Parks Blog.
WALL E couples shirts now available in my Redbubble shop.
