Class of 3000 Album Art

Back in my Cartoon Network Days, I worked on trade materials for CN animated shows. One show was called Class of 3000 which was a creation/collaboration with Andre' 3000 whom I interacted with a few times....he's a really cool guy. These images were for some fictional albums that his character on the show, Sunny Bridges (a retired famous animated musician who goes on to teach music) could have conceivably done. I did a load of these things and I don't know if they were ever utilized, but I enjoyed the exercise.

Minnie Liberty Oil for Sale

Okay, I've never sold an original painting or drawing publically because it just never occurred to me to try....so as an experiment, I'm putting this painting up for sale. It's 20"H x 15" W and 1.5" thick canvas and it's signed by yours truly.
I know I'm risking a potentially deafening chorus of crickets in offering this up for sale but maybe there's a big Minnie Mouse fan among the visitors to this site willing to pony up some Federal Reserve Notes to a genuine Disney artist*. If you know anybody who may be interested, go to my website for more details.

Topolino...Capisce?

This was a quick comp I did for TDS as a pitch for a product line look...it was never utilized. Mickey Mouse is very beloved to the Italians and known as "Topolino"or "little mouse."
 Fun Fact: according to this site ..."Mickey Mouse had a powerful fan in Italy.... Benito Mussolini himself! Mussolini and his family were big fans of the Mouse...."

Disney Store 25th Anniversary Vinylmation Series...the lost designs.

This Vinylmation series was designed for TDS 25th Anniversary which came out about a year and a half ago. (Oh, why yes, they sold quite handsomely thank you very much.) The pieces below were sold as a set but the original idea was to have 25 pieces....for the 25th Anniversary...see the math there? Anyway, that turned out to be a little too ambitious given our timing and manufacturing logistics so 13 of the intended designs were nixed...

...and here they are.....
