Another of my original pencil Tink drawings from “Art of Tink”, where it appeared in color.
I’ve posted the color art before, and the product it ended up on. So, here are a few of my original pencil “Art of Tink” sketches.
Throwback Thursday! Back in 2010 I was asked to do a special gift for Naomi Campbell by one of her closest friends for her 40th birthday. “OF COURSE !”, I said. After all who doesn’t love Naomi Campbell? Naomi is a Disney fan as well, so I was given the creative direction to create a magazine cover featuring Naomi and some Disney girls. This is what I came up with. A throw back to the glamour days of the 90’s Supermodels. No one else but Naomi should be in the middle anyway. I later received the sweetest thank you note from Naomi herself. It’s currently framed in my home office.
Finishing my post on the “Wish A Littles” I had worked on for the Disney Stores, I present the whole collection! :) Read more about all “the girls” in the link.
It’s the final week of the “Sketchbook Ornament” collection I created for the Disney Stores. Check out these, along with the entire assortment here!
This year for the D23 Expo , I was asked to be part of an artist signing for the “Art of Tink” exhibit. I knew I would be signing lithos of my work, but also thought I might need to bone up on my quick sketches of Tink incase I needed to draw. Always good practice. These are a few of my practice sketches. And wouldn’t you know, the line never let up. So, I never did get to draw at the event! :)
Every year at the Disney Store, one of my jobs is to create the new line of Christmas ornaments. I love designing ornaments, and hope you like the way they came out. It’s a chance for me to work with some great classic characters and help create moments that I hope will be shared during the holidays for years to come. This year the “Sketchbook Ornament Collection” is releasing a new group every week online for the next four weeks. After that time the entire collection will be available. So, this is a bit of a sneak peek! :) Click here to see which ones are out now! Including this limited edition Tinkerbell, online exclusive!
Disney’s D23 Expo 2013 was incredible! This year I was part of two signings were I got to meet hundreds of amazing people. Saturday morning after meeting with Ariel and Eric before the launch of the new “Art of Ariel” collection, I got to see the premiere of the new “Disney Geek” video I got to be a part of where I talk a little bit about the inspiration behind the new Ariel collection. After that it was time to start signing for fans that were already lined up including a mother and daughter that won the silent auction featuring a one of a kind piece I helped create just for the event of Ariel and Flounder. It was a great way to spend the morning with fellow artists Gerald Mendez, Quincy Sutton and Enrique Pita , who also helped create amazing art and vinylmation for this new collection. Even Designer Ariel showed up for the occasion! :) From there I had just enough time to run over a catch the Disney Legends award ceremony to see Glen Keane receive his award. If anyone was ever a Disney Legend in my mind, it’s Glen. His work continues to inspire me every day. Sunday was time for my signing at the “Art of Tink” exhibit. Artists from around the company were on hand to sign special lithos that were created just for the event. I was of course nervous that no one would attend. But to my surprise, so many fans turned out, including a few who I follow on Tumblr! I had a blast and will share more real soon!
I just came across this old concept sketch I did for a Tinkerbell snow globe from a while back. It’s always fun to see how closely the final product ends up when compared to the concept drawing. I may try to dig up more of these as examples over the next few weeks as I try to clean up a bit more around my desk area. There are years worth of drawings and designs in no particular order surrounding me so hopefully I’ll find some good stuff. New things are coming soon, promise. But for now, here’s Tink! I do remember at some point tilting her head in a slightly different position when compared to the drawing. It just gave her a little bit more of feeling of discovery, instead of just looking at a bug. ;) Enjoy.
