On Saturday, August 9, Jerrod Maruyama will return to WonderGround Gallery for the release of his newest Hipster Mickey piece – Hipster Haunt. The new image will be available on limited edition giclees, deluxe prints, postcards, magnets, and mugs. Jerrod will be signing that day from 11am – 1pm.
In other Hipster Mickey news, there is now a selection of WonderGround Gallery art and merchandise available at the new Co-Op shop at Disney’s Marketplace in Downtown Disney, Orlando. Check it out if you’re in the area. So glad to see WonderGround making it’s way to Florida.
And don’t forget – The WonderGround Mickey and Minnie mouse pins will be released August 28th at both the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim and the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.
While curating Summerland Movie Club, I did not have any influence over the movies the artists chose. I wanted the artists to be free to choose whatever they wished. So, I’m especially happy that Vanessa Ramirez paid tribute to “Moonrise Kingdom” with her mixed media piece. So gorgeous!!
This 3d tribute to “Say Anything” is a collaboration by Goreilla + Moemoe, a husband and wife art dream team in Southern California. I’m hoping that someone out there can help get John Cusack to notice this piece!
Both of these pieces are on view at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland through August 24. Check out all of the available pieces online.
Studio Ghibli fans need to check out these two amazing pieces at Summerland Movie Club! Kevin Stanton‘s tribute Kiki’s Delivery Service combines two of my favorite things: Studio Ghibli and food! The framed print has sold, but a few unframed prints are still available.
Cameron Garland‘s paper cut tribute Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind is just stunning, and you really need to see all the intricate details in person. This original art piece is still available at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland through August 24.
Heading to San Diego Comic-Con this week? Be sure to visit my buddy Martin Hsu at booth 4530. For Dragon Boy collectors, it’s the year of Dragon Boy Noir Edition! He’ll have new tees, art prints, and the Dragon Boy Noir vinyl figure (only 20 pcs available). He will also show the newest Dragon Boy Artist Series: exclusive one-of-a-kind customs by Oddfauna, Jeremiah Ketner, Mike Fudge, and 64 Colors.
Last but not least, you’ll be able to meet Dragon Boy’s best friend Blacky!! The 4″ figure costs $25, and only 50 will be available at SDCC.
If you are unable to attend Comic-Con, sign up for Martin’s newsletter to receive news on Blacky’s online availablity.
Summerland Movie Club is now at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland through August 24, and you can also check out the show online! Kristen Lau created three pieces for the show, and her tribute to How to Train Your Dragon 2 is one of two remaining pieces.
Ryan Shaw’s watercolor tribute to Alien is really fantastic! As someone commented on Instagram, “Giger would be proud.”
If you loved The Last Unicorn, you’ll love this painting by Rhodora Jacob. There are a lot of great pieces that are still available!
