Photograph of a block-print

With the advent of Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary set for this year, we wanted to create some original content for the site that celebrated this milestone. Personally, I have been enjoying a resurgence in my traditional training and have been spending more time painting, drawing and print making. This is a test print of an image for a larger concept that is in development for the site.

Illustration of a stylized "D"

It is a traditional block cut print and began life as a simple illustration of Disneyland’s “D”. There are some refinements for the larger piece, but the start of a potential block-cut alphabet is a possibility, considering how much I have been enjoying this work.

This type of premium might also be an offering in the upcoming Kickstarter project that I have been trying to finish over the holidays; but that is another story.
