Another wonderful case of two things I love intersecting...

Thanks, Kirk. I'd only ever seen his interpretation of the attraction poster.

My biggest regret from when I lived in L.A., is not buying one of Shag's paintings for a mere $350.00. I don't think you can even get one of his prints for that little now.

The sad thing is it was all because of indecision between three paintings I liked. By the time I thought about it and went back the next day, they were all snapped up.

I own a signed and numbered Shag print that I bought before he was so big. It's this one. I'm not gonna say what I paid for it (I doubt anybody would believe me anyway), but suffice it to say that it was nowhere near $700. Nowhere. Near.

I love the Haunted Mansion pieces. How wonderful!

Oh my GAWD this stuff makes me happy. I am going to Disney World next week, and my girls don't like Haunted stuff, so I am a bit screwed.

My partner and I are working on redesigning the MONSTERS CEREALS, Chocula etc. (I did the character redesign that are on the boxes now)

But now that I have seen this I am pretty embarrassed. But I will drop my link here, since I am totally going to link this page to my site.
