New Amsterdam Theatre Poster

Also while cleaning the garage this weekend, I came across a couple of these posters that my lovely bride Kara, designed in the early nineties when Disney signed a 99 year lease with the famous Broadway theatre on 42nd street. I have no idea if these were ever distributed anywhere outside of the company, but I think it's a fantastic looking poster. I'm very proud of her.
Kudos also go to Antoinette Portis who was Kara's Design Director at the time. They did some beautiful work together including some killer old school big budget styleguides for the Lion King, Mulan, Hunchback of Notre Dame, etc.

Look! I Found Some old Pooh in the Garage...

Back in the day, the Disney Store used to have a catalog that they put out every month. We used to get the opportunity to provide cover illustrations now and then. Mind you, this was in the mid to late 90's.
I found these in my garage today and thought I'd post them.
If I recall, I did the layout and pencil for the top one and I actually designed and illustrated the bottom one.
