I love my job! Why? Because I get to share with you events like the upcoming Artist Showcase with the Disney Design Group, taking place on April 27-28. Not only do you get the opportunity to add beautiful masterpieces to your very own Disney collection, but you also get the chance to meet and hang out with some of our very own Disney artists, including Costa Alavezos, Brian Blackmore, Natalie Kennedy, Randy Noble, Mark Seppala and Darren Wilson. It doesn’t get better than that.

The artists will be taking turns appearing and signing art at the Walt Disney World Resort on Saturday, April 27, from 2–5 p.m. and 6–9 p.m. and again on Sunday, April 28 from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. and 3–6 p.m. Keep in mind, not all artists will be present at all times. Make sure you visit for a complete list of signing times, in case there are particular artists you want to see.

Here’s a look at some of the art you can expect to find.

Want to see more? You know where they’ll be. I can tell you that there are quite a few other pieces by these artists debuting the same day, and you are not going to want to miss it.


  • Will Brian Blackmore’s and Alex Maher’s Sorcerer Mickey prints released at the event in April be released in a limited ediiton run of 95 pieces, similar to those of other paintings at the Art of Disney locations?

  • @Eric, you’re correct, while Donald was never officially part of the ‘band,’ he did appear in the The Band Concert animated short playing the flute. As it turns out Mark’s inspiration for this piece was not only the short but also from additional artwork that promoted this feature around its release in 1935. Hence the change of instrument, which was depicted in the other piece he used as inspiration to create this.

    @Cari Thanks for letting us know. The team has been trying to correct it.

  • The link to the Gallery isn’t working. 🙂

  • Uh, not to quibble classic trivia, but I’m pretty sure Donald wasn’t a member of the Band Concert and didn’t play the clarinet?
    (Or maybe this is a later band concert, where Mickey finally let him join.)
