Ever since I was little, I have been a huge fan of (almost) everything Disney.
When I was 9 years old, my parents took me and my brother to Disneyland Anaheim. Within minutes after entering the park, I was being hugged by Chip and Dale. Let me tell you, when you’re that age, and something like that happens, you’re hooked.
And although my love for Disney has much matured since then, I still get that same old happy feeling when watching a Disney movie, or when I see new Disney items entering my store. Or when I’m painting Disney…
That’s right. I like painting portraits, and I always wanted to portray one of my creative heroes. Uncle Walt himself.
This will eventually be a triptyrch. The left panel will represent Disney characters from the earlier days, the right panel the more recent ones. And the center panel represents the ones who started the whole Disney legacy: Walt, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and Mickey Mouse.
Here’s a sneak peek of the center panel.
