Happy #waltwednesday Everyone! Here’s a piece I made to experiment with colour. I really love the complementary Yellow and Purple colours mixed with blues and oranges. I then added in black and white highlights and shadows, to help the image not look 2d. I love this piece. • #disney #disneyland #disneyworld #photoshop #photoshopart #hongkongdisneyland #twdc #thewaltdisneycompany #shanghaidisneyland #waltdisneyworld #wdw #disneyworld #fineart #construction #tesla #complementarycolors #yellowandpurple #happy #bright #yellow #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #purple #truecrimestory #versace #mickey #universalstudios #walt #waltereliasdisney #waltdisney

Here’s a new piece that I’m really happy with. It’s another one based on emulating the style of some of my favourite Roy Lichtenstein paintings. This piece that I did of Sleeping Beauty Castle is based on Lichtenstein’s 1981 piece Sailboat. I love the movement of the brushstrokes in the water. I combined this with both flat colours with black details, as well as shading produced through halftone dots. • #disney #disneyland #disneyworld #sleepingbeautycastle #disneylandparis #hongkongdisneyland #travel #castmember #thankunext #waltdisneyworld #christmascastle #christmas #disneylandcalifornia #sleepingbeautyscastle #yellow #photoshop #digitalart #fineart #screenprinting #pointillism #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #disneybound #disneystyle #sfmoma #mickey #magickingdom #moma #roylichtenstein #lichtenstein

Here’s a piece I made to celebrate Mickey after discovering the incredible artwork made by Blue Note Records for their famous jazz album covers. Vox on YouTube did a great video looking at the history and analysing these great covers, and this piece is inspired by the Blue Note album Indestructible by drummer Art Blakey and his Jazz Messengers. 🎷🐭 🥁 • #disney #disneyland #disneyworld #herbiehancock #albumartwork #albumcover #mickeymouse #mickey #jazz #bluenote #wdw #bluenoterecords #pointillism #halftone #kevinhart #fantasia #sorcerermickey #fantasiamickey #fantasmic #red #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #disneybound #disneystyle #johncoltrane #yellow #magickingdom #thelick #jazzalbum

Happy Friday Everyone! After creating my piece for Mickey’s Birthday in the style of Roy Lichtenstein’s piece “Look Mickey”, an oil painting by him in 1961, I decided to create another one, starring my favourite of the Fab 5, Goofy! This is also inspired by a comic cover from around 1952, called “Mickey Mouse and the Wonderful Whizzex”, which I believe was written by Dick Moores. I know that it’s mostly traded, but the novelty comes from the choice of colour, the use of the speech bubble, and also the way that I emulate Lichtenstein’s dots for the character’s eyes. These pieces have been fun for experimenting with the vital Art Element of colour. My interest in Roy Lichtenstein came from both Ryan’s @keystonemagic explorations in his style, and my trip to San Francisco MoMa with my Mum. Like the last one, I’m extremely proud of this piece. 🐶 🐭 🚘 • #disney #mickey #mickeymouse #tokyodisneyland #disneylandparis #hongkongdisneyland #mickey90 #castmember #goofy #waltdisneyworld #agoofymovie #mickeymouse90 #happybirthdaymickey #roy #lichtenstein #roylichtenstein #history #arthistory #minniemouse #happybirthday #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #disneybound #disneystyle #trivia #mouse #art #comic #comicstrip

I cannot put into words how inspiring this incredible museum was. My mum and I were some of the first to enter for the day, and were definitely the last to leave. The Walt Disney Family Museum in the Presidio In San Francisco is an incredible place, with Walt’s life chronologically displayed, showing both his great successes, and his very human failures. This is a must see experience for any Disney fan of any kind. It is definitely the best looking, and thought through museums with highlights for all sorts of people, including many interactive elements. Their Disneyland area for instance includes an interactive Tiki Bird animatronic that you can puppeteer. Thank you so much mum for allowing me to experience this incredible place, and for the incredible staff there. As the sign above the Disneyland model of Walt’s lifetime time says “You can dream, create, design and build the most wonderful place in the world, but it requires people to make the dream a reality.” I hope to impact that wonderful place that I love sometime and somehow in my lifetime. Lots of Love, Jacques.

Happy 90th Birthday Mickey! Last night (my time) I was inspired to make a birthday piece for Mickey in the style of Roy Lichtenstein, as a challenge for myself as I love his work. I was inspired by the piece “Look Mickey”, an oil painting by him in 1961, and a comic cover from around 1953. I stayed up till the early morning tracing a comic panel, as he would do, choosing what colour should go where, and so on. I also think that the way that he painted Mickey’s eyes was unique, two small dots. I then added in the speech bubble and comic-styled text. I’m extremely proud of this piece. Happy 90th Birthday Mickey. 🍰 🎁 🎂 • #disney #mickey #mickeymouse #tokyodisneyland #disneylandparis #hongkongdisneyland #mickey90 #castmember #shanghaidisneyland #waltdisneyworld #shareyourears #mickeymouse90 #happybirthdaymickey #roy #lichtenstein #roylichtenstein #history #arthistory #minniemouse #happybirthday #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #disneybound #disneystyle #trivia #mouse #art #comic #comicstrip

A Spider-Man Ride and A Flying Spider-Man “Stuntronic”?! Here’s a glimpse of the new #marvelland coming to Disney’s California Adventure, seen here from what looks like the former #bugsland entrance! This art was attached to a New York Times article titled “Disney Is Spending More on Theme Parks Than It Did on Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm Combined”, which talks about the present and future plans and economics of the parks.

Happy #newridefriday Everyone! Here’s what I’ve been doing to zen out between studying at school. It’s not an image for a new ride, but I’ve been working with new processes and digital brushes to create, what I think, it’s better results. This will allow me to create better concept art in the future. Thanks for the support everyone. - Jacques.

Sadly today, I woke up to the news the Disney Legend, comic-book writer, editor, film executive producer, actor, and publisher, Stan Lee, had passed away. I’m sure you’ve read all of the touching tributes. From Bob Iger to NASA, Iron man to Captain America, the world is mourning the loss of another visionary. Stan Lee, original name Stanley Martin Lieber, was born on December 28th, 1922, in New York City. After graduating from high school at age 16, Lieber was hired as an editorial assistant for Timely Comics, and in 1942 he was promoted to editor. By that time he had begun writing comic-book scripts for Timely as Stan Lee, a pseudonym that eventually became his legal name. In the 1940s and ’50s—during which time the group, later named Atlas, struggled financially—Lee created several comic-book series. In 1961 Lee and artist Jack Kirby created The Fantastic Four. The series made him and Atlas—now known as Marvel—major forces in the comics world. One year later Lee and artist Steve Ditko created Spider-Man.  Lee and Kirby added another winner to the group when they created The X-Men in 1963. A distinctive feature of Lee’s comic-book heroes is that they combine superhuman powers with human insecurities and emotions. Marvel continued to prosper, and in 1972 Lee became publisher and editorial director of the group. After working for Marvel in an official capacity for nearly 60 years, Lee began to pursue other projects. Eventually his role at Marvel became that of chairman emeritus. In 2004 Pow Entertainment was established for Lee’s various new characters and franchises. Film adaptations based on the series that Lee cocreated were highly successful. X-Men (2000) and Spider-Man (2002) and Iron Man (2008) launched blockbuster franchises that are earning billions of dollars in box-office revenue worldwide. Lee was often featured in cameo roles in those films, a tradition that continued after Disney purchased Marvel in 2009. A flood of Marvel films followed the purchase, including those based on Lee-Kirby creations such as Thor (2011), the Avengers (2012), and many others.  In 2008 he was awarded a National Medal of Arts. #excelsior !

Happy #halloween Every Mortal! This is my idea for a fifth park at #waltdisneyworld , and my idea for that parks Icon! I title the park “Disney’s Villain Kingdom”, and the icon of the park is Yang to the Ying of Sleeping Beauty Castle, it is Malificent’s Forbidden Mountain! This park would be incredible. Every Hero has their villain, and this is their home. Jafar, the Evil Queen, even a whole land dedicated to The Nightmare Before Christmas. This is also utilises the attractions designed for Beastly Kingdom at DAK. Tell me what you think!

Happy Birthday Mum. Thank you for supporting my dream everyday with such passion and happiness. Thank you for everything you do for me. I am surprised how relaxed we were on our last 3 week holiday together. We are truly so similar. Thank you for being one of my best friends. Love you Laura.

When designing Epcot Center, the talented minds at WED Enterprises, now known as Walt Disney Imagineering, made sure that every visual element made guests feel as if they were truly stepping into a community of tomorrow. Take, for example, the contemporary circular symbols designed for Epcot: Spaceship Earth, Universe of Energy, Horizons, World of Motion, Communicore, Journey Into Imagination, The Land, The Living Seas, and Epcot itself. Epcot needed an appropriately futuristic logo. During the 1970s, Disney designers came up with a variety of potential logos, some of which are seen here. The logo design on the second image was proposed in 1978. Card Walker, then Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company, nixed the design, saying that it reminded him of a stop sign. It was designer Norm Inouye who would eventually hit upon the idea: five rings–representing information, technology, environment, education, and entertainment–surrounding a central star, seen on the third image. When those individual concepts linked up, he says, the logo for Epcot Center was created. “All the other [pavilion logos] are single rings, and the Epcot logo was five rings and represented what I thought was the idea of Epcot Center.” Disney Legends Marty Sklar and John Hench, who oversaw the Epcot design efforts, liked the idea. After some modifications, Norm’s design became the familiar “flower” logo which would become a welcome sight to Epcot visitors for years to come. Marty summarized the symbolism behind this iconic image: “The Epcot Center logo symbolizes unity, fellowship, and harmony around the world. Five outer rings are linked to form the shape of a flower–a celebration of life. The heart of the logo is the Earth, embraced by a star symbolizing hope–the hope that with imagination, commitment, and dedication, we can create a better tomorrow.” • #disney #disneyland #disneyworld #tokyodisneyland #disneylandparis #hongkongdisneyland #travel #castmember #shanghaidisneyland #waltdisneyworld #wdw #disneyblog #disneyig #epcotcenter #logoconcept #logo #d23 #wedenterprises #wed #imagineering #vintagedisneyland #logodesign #disneystyle #epcot #graphicdesign #magickingdom

Thanks to an incredible friend Joe @guajj001 and my incredible mother, we got to tour both The Walt Disney Company Lot, a car tour of The Disney Grand Central Creative Campus, and a beautiful dinner at Walt and The Imagineer’s favourite restaurant, the Tam O’Shanter. These are some photos of Joe, my mum and I at The Walt Disney Studios Lot. It was incredible seeing the archives before they closed, touring the offices, and watching the squirrels. This is one experience I will never forget. 💖✨💖 #disneyland #disney #waltdisneystudios #waltsoffice #disneyworld #disneyparks #mickeymouse #waltdisney #waltereliasdisney #disneystore #disneystudios #partners #steamboatwillie #partnersstatue #mainstreet #mainstreetapartment #burbank #disneyside #disneymagic #happiestplaceonearth #disneylegends #mickey #watertower #privatetour #glendale #waltereliasdisney#pumpkin #disneyphotography #magickingdom #justgothappier
