Ahh, Iron Bird!


I've always liked Disneyland's old attraction posters, the stylized ones with limited color palettes. This picture was also inspired by travel posters from the 20s and 30s (which I guess might be what inspired Disney artists). I used acrylic on illustration board for the background, then gouache for the bontebok family watching a plane come in.
