I have collectors who have every painting I've ever sold. I love these collectors and it's such an honor to be on the wall where some of it spills out into another parts of the home. This collector has a room of Joel. This is one of several walls covered fronlm top to bottom in his home. It was amazing to see. So many years and brush strokes.

When you look out at Disneyland, you're not looking at a theme park... you're looking at proof that you can achieve your dreams despite all adversity. I was 5 when I decided I'd be a Disney artist with paintings selling out in the gallery. Yesterday I achieved that dream. Thanks Walt and to all of the magic makers that helped make that happen.
We had a BLAST at Disneyland today and had another successful signing event. What a joy to be in the company of such talent. The cast members who helped were valued assets to the event and I great appreciate all of the fans and friends that came out to see a lifelong dream of mine fulfilled.
When I was a Lead Artist, I did this level in a day for the game Dirty Harry. Unfortunately the team couldn't get their act together and the project died on the vine. Still, I was really proud of this location and everyone was dumbfounded that I was able to build something of this detail and finish in a day.
So when you're astonished that I finished the commission you asked me to paint or draw for you, remember I have 28 years as an art director/artist in the video game industry requiring break neck deliverables... and I always delivered.
