Disney Performers

There are musicians and performers all over Disney. They bring so much life and character to the parks! They pop in and out of nowhere, and I drop everything to chase them around. Here are a few drawings.

The Magic Kingdom Barbershop Quartet on Main Street USA

The Animal Kingdom African Drummers in Harambe Village

Rain Or Shine

Temple of Heaven, China

There is something about rain drops on paper that just make the drawing sing. A storm came and went while I did this panoramic in Chinese pavilion of Epcot in Walt Disney World. By the time I was done, people stomped already dry pavement in glistening sun.

A Learning Drawing

I am back from the drawing (bootcamp) class with Dalvero Academy in Orlando's Walt Disney World. It's the best and my favorite place to study!

Here's a real learning drawing: I was grinding my teeth while doing it, figuring out the space and the constantly moving conveyer belt of people along the winding layers of stairs, standing on top of this  Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse in Magic Kingdom, under the beating sun rays in nearly 100F degree heat. The best way to learn something is to step out of your comfort zone. This treehouse is like an incarnation of Escher's drawing, which is a nightmare and great fun to draw, all at once. I *could* do without the heat, but hey - might have been worse: one of those torrential downpours that faithfully came and went every afternoon during our trip. Actually, the next drawing I'll be posting happened during a storm.
