Alright, I'll admit it: It's a pretty ugly day out there today, and I'm doing some California dreaming. That said, I thought it would be nice to post a little something special for those of you also stuck inside working because of the winter weather.
How's this piece of attraction poster art for California Adventure? Imagineering's Tim Delaney- that designer of the incredibly gorgeous Discoveryland for Disneyland Paris- created this concept for the second park in Anaheim.
It's clearly for DCA 1.0 as it features a "hip and edgy" style the suits so loved, featuring the Sun Icon, the entry tile murals, and the miniature Golden Gate Bridge. As we all know, the first version of the park was a colossal failure which eventually resulted in a grand redesign- the first ever in Disney park history (until Disney's Hollywood Studios follows suit)- and it's now a great success and worthy of the name Disney.
If you want more Tim Delaney, and you should, then cruise the blog for more rare artwork from a very talented man!
