Walt Disney World

Happy New Year! I been in Walt Disney World since Christmas and just returned home last night.
I spend alot of time there as some of you know, but what many of you don't know is that the reason I am so attached to the place is because I grew up there.


When I was young I wrote a letter to the head animator and asked for a job. To make a long story short, after visiting yearly as a child, I worked there in college and lived there for years. I worked in the animation building just before beginning my business in art/fashion. Many clients tell me my fashion illustrations have a sort of whimsy to them- I credit this to what I learned from Disney.

That is so cool! So in addition to your natural whimsy you got an extra injection of it from Disney World! Awesome.
