Wonderground at Downtown Disney

Hey family & friends, It’s been a goal of mine since I first picked up a paintbrush to have art in a gallery at Disneyland. I’m super happy to invite you to come out to my first actual Disney art showing. I’m one of 4 artists premiering brand new art as part of the “Pop Fusion” series. I’ll have four brand new Disney Character pieces premiering that day (Simba, Wreck It Ralph, Mulan & Belle). It would be awesome to see you that day, so if you don’t have plans come by Downtown Disney and check it out.

Here is a link to a bit more info…

Opening Night DUOS

 

 

flyerBACK

It’s around the corner, and I was able to crank out 69 different duos for this show. If you are in the OC this Sat, June 1st be sure to stop by and enjoy the overdose of pop. I’ll be throwing some more sneak peeks up as we get closer, look out for that. OK Bye.

 

My Oh My

Rat Trap is turning into being a big success. If you are in the hood this weekend, we will be open this Weekend, May 19 & 20, Saturday and Sunday, Noon until 5pm. As for my stuff, I had a collection of old and new in this show. I premiered 3 new pieces for this show, all of which I was pretty stoked to have in it. The first one was a painting of everyone’s favorite Cast Member, Maynard. The next was that Ghostbusters/Mansion mash up. And then there is this Gal, a pin up of one of the Park’s Tour Guides. Let’s call her Lily.  I’ve always seen them as the “school girls” of the Park, so it was a natural fit. Hopefully I’m not alone on that thought. I gave her some dorky Disney nerd tats and details that tied to the Park, basically had a lot of fun with it. It’s a mix of acrylic on canvas and graphic design for the text. I sold out of prints from the show of this piece but just reloaded. Let me know if you anyone is interested. $20 bucks each. You can email me or click here. Enjoy.

Rat Trap Opening Night

Not gonna lie, last Saturday’s opening night reception was a lot of fun. If you made it out, hopefully you had a good time too. My apologies about the lack of air conditioning. That is just one of the many learnings from “Fisher Price: My First Gallery”. If you are new to this I’ll recap. The Rat Trap is an unofficial tribute show with 22 artists participating in a Pop Art “celebrity roast” of Orange County’s most famous local hang out, Disneyland. We set up shop for this one at the Promenade Gallery in Anaheim. Although not all the pieces ended up being a jab at Walt’s original Magic Kingdom, everything came out awesome. Thanks to everyone who contributed kick ass art. Thanks to Kelly for letting us know about the space. Thanks to Batchy for being my (life) partner in crime. Thanks to the family and friends who helped bring a little sanity and order to the operation. And thanks to all the visitors who wandered into this experiment we call the Rat Trap. The show was a huge success, if you missed opening night you have a few more chances to check it out. Check the Facebook page for exact dates and times.

The Happiest Gallery on Earth

I am excited to officially announce that this May I’ll have some art pieces in a little art show “Rat Trap- The Happiest Gallery On Earth”. Just down the street from the original Magic Kingdom, will be almost a month long tribute/roast Art Gallery featuring original artwork by a group of about 20 artists, inspired by the world famous “Happiest Place on Earth”, Disneyland. This is a totally unofficial show and has no affiliation to the Walt Disney Company, stay tuned for more legal disclaimers as needed. I invite you to come down to the Downtown Anaheim’s very own Promenade Gallery starting May 12 to take a look at a collection of original paintings, sculpture and other pop art inspired by the House of Mouse. Many of us grew up around here under the shadow of the Matterhorn and have had some major influence from Walt’s “little park”. This is our way of having some fun with our love/hate relationship with the place. Look out for a big opening night reception, more info to come as we get closer to the show.
