Chip ‘n Dale - Sketchbook Ornament - “Two Chips and a Miss”
Every year when I design the “Sketchbook Ornament” series for the Disney Stores, I try to be mindful of characters, moments and details that collectors will appreciate. One of my favorite animated shorts growing up was “Two Chips and a Miss” with Chip ‘n Dale. You may recognize that even though this particular detail is on the backside of the ornament, it’s just as important to the story. The dressing room marked, “Clarice”. :)

Christmas is here! -
The “Sketchbook Ornament Collection” I design for the Disney Stores arrive online today and arriving in stores soon. Here are a select few of some of my favorites from this year. There are plenty more where these came from as I work on about 60 new designs every year! They sell out pretty fast. So, if you have a favorite, make sure to pick it up before they’re all gone.
i’ll be sharing more about this collection and a few sketches in the upcoming weeks.
Until then, enjoy! :)

Just for fun - Aladdin and Jasmine - color and black and white
I’ve been having a real blast learning to color digitally. In my spare time I decided to push myself a little further than the usual single character poses, just for fun. So, for a super fun Friday post, here are Aladdin, Jasmine and Abu in color and my original pencil drawing. Enjoy!
