The Hatbox Ghost

The Hatbox Ghost

This infamous resident from the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland is named the Hatbox Ghost.  His special talent is to make his head disappear from his body and reappear in the hatbox as you pass by him.  He is a new member of the 999 happy haunts that fill  the mansion but, this is not his first time there.  Part of fame comes from the fact that he was an original character when the ride opened.  He was there for just a few days and just like you would expect from a ghost, he disappeared completely.  In, fact, the animatronic of the character was completely lost!

For the fans, he was that character that we had to know more about.  We would crave those photos that surfaced to try and imagine what the Mansion would be like with him in it.  I believe that old video footage of him has recently surfaced.  Thanks to Disney we no longer have to imagine what the Hatbox Ghost was like because they have made a new version of him and he currently is haunting the attic of the Mansion in Disneyland.

For more great info about the Mansion, you should checkout the greatest Haunted Mansion website-Doombuggies.com

This is a 6″x8″ ink and watercolor painting

Everybody’s Got A Laughin’ Place

Everybody’s Got A Laughin’ Place

Everybody’s got a laughin’ place
This is a painting of the final scene of the ride, Splash Mountain. It features the largest animatronic(the boat, which rocks back and forth) and a bunch of animatronic characters from the America Sings attraction. It is a oil, ink and watercolor painting.
This is for sale and will be on Etsy soon.

Splash Mountain is one of the rides that I love going on but will sometimes have to skip.  It’s always a last second judgement call on if I’m willing to walk around the park with wet pants and shoes.  But, the theming and ride itself is so great!

Try Something

From the lack of frequency on my blog you can see that I did not make it through the 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge.  I gave up on it after I realized that this month was just too busy and stressful for me to keep that pace going.  I’d do more art than I posted here.  There were a few more pieces on my social media.  You should follow along with, it’s fun!

One other reason for the lack of art is that I’m just not enjoying what I have been producing, and this has been an issue for a while now.  So, the thing I need to start focusing on is fixing this.  What that means is still unknown to me.

But, I will keep plugging along.  And this piece is a part of that process.  It is a watercolor and ink painting of the bounty hunter from Star Wars, Boba Fett.  And, here is the non painted version:

Which version do you prefer, ink or painted?

30 Paintings in 30 Days- Day 8

5″x7″ ink and oil painting on a smooth artist panel.

30 Paintings in 30 Days – Day 8
Today is a big day. I’m making the drive from the Bay Area into Hollywood to go to the Hollywood Bowl to see a live version of The Muppet Show! It’s very exciting and something I never would have thought possible. That’s why I did this painting today. It is a 5″x7″ ink and oil painting on a smooth artist panel.

Golly What A Day

9″X12″ Gouache paint on illustration board

  Here is a scene from the great version of the Robin Hood story that Disney created.  Robin Hood and Little John, walking through the forest.  I feel like this is another one of the great Disney films that does not get the attention it should.

Pigs In Space!

11″x17″
ink and watercolor

I love the Muppets.  And if you are like me, that probably means you love Pigs in Space.  I always enjoy drawing Jim Henson related characters and I come back to these characters and subjects often.  Kind of like I feel about doing Star Wars related art.

It is an ink and watercolor painting on watercolor paper.  This is one that I forgot to post the finished image of.
