You know how much I love the hand-painted Ink & Paint cel program, so it should be no surprise to you that I find this newest release a stroke of evil genius, as it captures a true moment of “reflection” (in a sense) by one of Disney’s most beloved Villains.
Don’t take it to heart, the newest limited edition 1000 piece is aptly titled Reflection of Evil and will release on September 28 at Studios Animation Gallery. It features a delicately and precisely hand-painted Evil Queen as she sees her true self and reflection of what she is to become in the Magic Mirror.
Reflection of Evil will be available in the following formats, including framing options and retails:
Unframed Cel – $125
Black Frame and Cel – $215
Black Frame with Pin and Cel – $245
Black Frame with Pin, Postcard and Cel – $255
Gold Frame and Cel – $285
Here’s a quick peek at the pin that accompanies the cel in a couple of the framed formats.
For those of you in the area, several of the Ink & Paint artists associated with this piece will actually be on hand for a special appearance and signing September 28 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. at Studios Animation Gallery in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
