This week's post isn't about anything old, but it does combine a few things from my childhood quite well!
A while back I ran across an artist out of California that really got my attention. Now, I'm not exactly a fine art lover, but I know what I like, and I love these!
Yes, that's Cruella Deville (101 Dalmations) and Yzma (Emperors New Groove) drawn in the style of Rat Fink artist Ed Roth! Both 11x14 prints were done (and hand signed) by this guy:
Apparently, Mr. Estrada went to work for Disney, Dreamworks, and a few other places as an animator in the late 1990s. Since then he has added being the official Ed "Big Daddy" Roth Rat Fink artist. When you covered that much ground, why not do a little mashing up? And that's exactly what he's done!
I actually only ordered the Cruella print (it was one of my favorite movies as a kid, and I loved her psycho car that spit fire and roared!). Thomas threw in the Yzma print as a bonus. Since I think "Emperors New Groove" is one of the funnier Disney films of that time, I love it as well!
These totally checked both my "Disney" and "60s car culture" boxes! All at once! How cool!
Even after a couple of years, I haven't framed them yet, but I will. By the way, I put my first ever "watermark" on these because, as you know, people can do mean things to artists' work that's on the internet. Like steal it.
The print(s) was (were) very reasonable, but I don't know what they go for now. I do know that he has tons of stuff on his website, and it's worth a look.
Until next time, keep searching for treasure!
Well, it looks like when I post on my own blog from my tablet it knows me too!ReplyDelete
The mystery deepens...
I love Cruella (my favorite Disney character) and Yzma—who autocorrect wants to change to Yuma. These are fun!ReplyDelete
