The artwork article of the week is all about early Disneyland concept-arts and don't go away before the end of the article as i will tell you how you can get some great prints of these rare WDI renderings at affordable price.
Above, a great 1960's concept art of Disneyland's Tomorrowland. The artwork below shows the Jungle Cruise and Swiss Robinson Tree and was used for the attraction poster.
The next artwork is a rare Marc Davis rendering for a Jungle Cruise scene.
Below, a great painting for Disneyland's Tahitian Terrace.
The next rendering show, of course, Disneyland's Haunted Mansion.
Below, a less known concept-art for Disneyland's Matterhorn.
This next artwork shows Mr Toad's Toad Hall and i think it was used too for Disneyland Paris Toad restaurant.
Below, a great John Hench painting for Disneyland's Carousel of Progress.
And this last artwork show the Adventure through Inner Space extinct attraction with the famous mighty microscope and the People Mover going through the building.
Now, the good news is that most of these concept-arts are available right now on Ebay as some Ebay sellers - not me - are currently selling great prints of all these artworks with dimensions, for some of them, up to 32 x 40 inches! All the pictures of this article are coming from these auctions and this is why they're not today in high-res as usual. But the Ebay prices for these prints looks extremely reasonable and if you're interested you can make your choice HERE - or go to www.ebay.com and type "Disneyland concept art" as keywords.
