In the early 90's I did a series of paintings for the Walt Disney World Company starting with their 25th anniversary celebration.That led me to creating an original painting from the movie Sleeping Beauty featuring Maleficent as a dragon. Disney made hundreds of prints and thousands of posters, plates, magnets and all kinds of fun things that I signed for hundreds of guests who waited on line at the Disneyanna convention and at the Art of Disney gallery.

Over the years I've done design and illustration work for Disney such as the product and merchandise art for the Animal Kingdom seen above, After a 15 year hiatus, I decided to start creating paintings for the Art of Disney. My first submission, "Leader of the Band" went in "The Art of Disney" gallery at EPCOT, December 21st and SOLD Dec. 28th! My second painting, "Ariel's Treasure" was completed in March and sold in April at "The Art of Disney" gallery in Downtown Disney. (Now Disney Springs) You can see the process for that painting by clicking HERE or on the link below!

In all, I ended up doing 17 paintings that were featured and sold in the Art of Disney galleries and other locations on Disney property.
