I've had an idea in my head regarding Disneyland/World rides since I started getting addicted to Phineas and Ferb. Among the many reasons why I love the show, the crazy things they build in their backyard is high on the list.

With that in mind, I wanted to create a compact and overloaded version of classic Disney rides and their surrounding themes, with one thing on top of the other and everything connected together in the same structure.

I started off with this piece of concept art by John Hench for the basic shape of the building. Then I incorporated the Monorail, Astro Orbiter and the Peoplemover into the design, as well as elements from the different tomorrowlands around the world (and past versions of it).

I struggled to get away from my usual super-saturated look, and tried going with a more neutral color scheme (even though it's still pretty colorful) that had a bit of a 50's/60's feel.
I'm not sure how many of my original intentions I ended up accomplishing, but regardless, I'm really happy with the result =)

I do plan on making more rides... hopefully it'll happen

Tomorrowland was always a favorite of mine when I was a kid, especially space mountain. Spectacular combination, I really enjoyed this artistic idea. :judge: :)

I've been trying to put my finger on what it is about the 'Disney TomorrowLand' aesthetic I love so much. That sort of retro / art deco / space grandeur that doesn't exist anywhere else. Whatever it is, you nailed it. I love how you worked everything in together without losing any of the individual rides characters. Lovely muted pastel colour scheme too.

Love how you incorporated the Tower of the Four Winds...I love that particular piece. This whole poster is excellent and captures that 50s/60s feel pretty well.

Absolutely! I enjoyed their movie more than any other animation that came out that year
Now I'm addicted to Gravity Falls as well. Have you watched it yet? It's beyond amazing!

Yes I have and I think it's amazing!! I argue the point that if adults get to draw and write it then adults get to watch it! *squeels* I feel overly excited about this for some reason!!!

The other way around: make them contact you. Like that guy from Pixar did.
just post your fan art all over the net, publish the hell out of it :). on all disney forums, places where people from Disney could be, etc. go for it !

whoaaa, going to california ! :) wicked !
I just know that if you keep stalking them they can't avoid you and will hire you sooner or later. it's only a matter of time
recently saw a documentary about the guy who does Elmo. He was a giant puppetry fan since he was a kid and looked up to Jim Henson as if he was god.
He sought contact in every possible way, gaining experience in the field, kept trying and trying and trying and eventually ended up working with his god Jim Henson and being the guy who came up with and does the voice of Elmo. so cool
