I blogged about this on June 17, 2013, so that means this took six weeks. Just as Disney promised.
On Saturday, June 22, 2013, at Animation Gallery inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Disney Studios' Ink & Paint team released their Hollywood and Dine
cel. This piece features Minnie, Mickey and a hand painted Goofy as
they celebrate the golden age of Hollywood at the iconic Hollywood Brown
Derby located inside Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The first 750 framed cels ordered came with a special limited edition pin to commemorate the release of Hollywood and Dine, as well as a postcard signed by the Ink & Paint artist. Naturally, who had to have that? The cel edition size was 1,000, and the pin edition size was 750.
Now to show off a little bit. I have this piece hanging in my office at work, right next to the 2011 Ink & Paint release, Key to the Kingdom, commemorating Walt Disney World's 40th anniversary.
And yes, that is a record I made into a clock.
Here's a closeup of the Hollywood & Dine piece.
And here it is framed. I wish they had shown more of Simba's and Brer Fox's face, but at least they made the piece!
For some reason, they didn't attached the CoA to this piece, so I'll have to do that at some point. However, that meant I could scan it and offer it as evidence that I did indeed make this purchase. As if there would be any doubt!
