Disney: Spectral MAGIC!


So last year at Disney, there happened to be a slight hurricane the entire time we were there. So the Spectral Magic Night Parade Extravaganza was canceled every night we were in the Magic Kingdom. But THIS time, there was no hurricane, and I finally got to see the parade. It was fantastic! They shut off all of the lights on Main Street, and then these bizarre, neon, laser-light, floats and dancers come swirling around and winding their way through the streets, with futuristic beeping and whirring sound effects. It's very beautiful, and very trippy. My favorite part was the Pegaus float from Fantasia, I'm going to have to do a drawing of just them next year....

These are so cool! And also beautiful. How did you do these pictures -- is it a special technique?

Hi Evan,

I just found your work, as I have been looking up reportage illustration.
I notice in a lot of the work you use a rectangle to focus attention. Its a really useful device, could you give me any more info about how to use it for maximum effect....was it somting taught on your course?....Ed

Thanks guys!

Aunt Gina: I just inverted the actual drawing:

I couldn't decide which one I liked better though...

Ed: Our teachers teach us to use it because it forces the design and picture-making in a drawing.

Sara: Yes, yes it is. I'll meet you at the carousel tomorrow, 2ish?
