  • Hey there
    Any chance a date has been decided for the Oswald Vinylmation that blog reported on earlier this month?

  • Wow!! That Belle painting is beautiful! 😮

  • Oh Man! DLR gets the coolest stuff. Where’s the tiki love for WDW??

  • These monthly event posts are usually when you get a break and I’m asking Michelle my questions! 🙂 For the August 13 event, is Joey Chou releasing two pieces of art? One for Space Mountain and one for the Jungle Cruise? Will these be offered as deluxe prints, and will they be offered on the app at any time? Also, I saw where Bill Robinson has an awesome piece from Pirates of the Caribbean of the jail/dog scene. But the piece is currently not offered in a deluxe print. Are there any plans to release the art as a deluxe print?
