Chip Foose Returns to D-Street with New Artwork for Downtown Disney Car Masters Weekend on June 15-16

I’m excited to share that legendary car designer and builder, Chip Foose, is returning to Car Masters Weekend this year at Downtown Disney on June 15-16. The event is dedicated to all things automotive, including Disney•Pixar’s “Cars” and a dynamic car show featuring over 150 vehicles. I recall attending last year’s event with my fiancé and son. I took many photos of some pretty classic cars (which is probably about as close as I’m going to get to owning one). For this year’s event, Chip created some original artwork featuring elements from Walt Disney World Resort done in his signature marker style.

We will offer apparel, deluxe prints and even Chip’s original art featuring select images. The image of the fire engine in front of Cinderella Castle will be turned into a license plate and limited edition D-Tech On Demand cases for the iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 (there will be 25 cases for each iPhone model).

I think my favorite design is the Tomorrowland Speedway-inspired car shown above (now that would be an awesome car for “cruisin’” to work).

These items will be released at D-Street and at the Disney Truck Shop in Downtown Disney West Side. Chip will be making an appearance at D-Street on both Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Guests who purchase one of Chip’s items will receive a wristband to meet him that day (queue will be formed starting at 10:30 a.m. in front of D-Street).

How much will the lithographs cost this year?

@Norman – The prints will be $39.95 each. Three out of the four images will be turned into prints. They will be released at D Street in Downtown Disney West Side.

I just love these pictures, it add a whole new dimension to Disney, I love it. Will those lithographs be available off the internet if so when and where will they become available.

 

Steven Miller on June 12th, 2013 at 11:05 am

@Patrick – Glad you like the images! I love Chip’s work and style. Unfortunately, the prints will only be offered at D Street at Downtown Disney West Side in Florida. We won’t be able to carry them via our Disney Parks online store and our Merchandise Guest Services mail order team won’t have access to them.

Steven, 2 quick questions. At D-Street, are all the prints going to be available as shirts? Other shirts available? Thanks for your time!

 

Steven Miller on June 12th, 2013 at 2:15 pm

@Donald – There will be tee shirts at D Street featuring all four images shown above. It appears they will be printed on white tees and will have a Car Masters Weekend logo on the sleeve. There are no other shirts planned.

We love all of Chips work. Unfortunatly our Disney Vacation starts 6/30 Can we get a print tied to our stay and pick it up when we arrive? Is that something we could request from the hotel Concierge?

 

Steven Miller on June 13th, 2013 at 8:11 pm

@Marjorie – I hope you have a great trip. The merchandise will be sold on a in person first-come, first-serve basis at D Street during the weekend. It’s difficult to say if any items will remain after the event. I’ve not heard of hotel concierge doing that kind of thing before.

@Kari – Yes! Chip will be meeting with fans and signing items purchased that day. He will be at D Street from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
