Can't begin to tell you how incredibly excited I am to finally see and ride these wonderful Skyliner gondolas!

As part of a series of "artist's choice" tee shirt designs for the California parks, I came up with this one for Disney California Adventure. Being a native of Los Angeles, I really enjoyed working on this piece - even though my specialty is Character Art. Also pictured below is the original concept sketch. From there, after a few passes and rearrangement in Photoshop, I finalized the art as a vector illustration.

These are from a Cars book I illustrated in late 2010; it's a die-cut board book. The pink lines indicated the template of the book shape, and the text shown here is not final. The Cars franchise has always been a favorite of mine, and I'll always be grateful for the opportunities I had to work with these characters.
I always got a kick out of the little Lightning McQueen toys he had on display in Mack's trailer, and the minivan with the mattress cracked me up...
The Cars films are so clever in how buildings and even natural elements are "car-ified", and notice how the digital camera is mounted like a side-view mirror in the foreground...

This was for a Finding Nemo short story published in the 2005 Disney Year Book called "Hide 'n Seek Friends", about a flounder who has a hard time fitting in, due to her eyes being on one side of her head. This property is one of my favorites, and it was so much fun incorporating a new character into their world. It was a cute little story, and I love how she saves her friends from a tiger shark by instinctively burrowing into the sand. Everyone has their weaknesses, but they also have their strengths.

This was one of my first freelance jobs, back around 1995 or 1996. I did the tight pencils for this Mealtime Fun book, which was a cute little round board book, packaged with a fork and spoon. It must have been around the time we were working on the "Pomp and Circumstance" segment of "Fantasia/2000", because I had been working on Donald Duck quite a bit at that time. The classic characters are always a joy.

Had a great time at D23 last week signing the Star Tours 30th Anniversary art for Guests, as well as the American Adventure USA map, to which I had contributed character art.
I also happened to walk by the Little Golden Books booth, and signed some of the Star Wars books for them. I wasn't expecting to see them there, so that was pretty cool!
