Fireball Design FRIDAY… CARS of IMAGINEERING

When I graduated from Art Center in 1989, I went to Disney Imagineering for 3 years. While there, I did many different projects that incorporated vehicles. Primarily involved in the New Tomorrowland. These three were concept that ultimately were Dealer Posters of new models coming out in 2100.

But after Disney pulled the plug on NT after 3 years, I went on to Indiana Jones… and then they laid off 500 people. Thus, the real fun began. 😉

Way back in the day, my wife and I worked at IMAGINEERING for Disney Theme Parks. Kathie was the lead sculptor for Toontown, but actually was the final colorist for these sculpts. They’ve been buried since 1991, so I decided to whip ’em out. Enjoy.

Fireball Design… OLD DISNEY ART @disneyland

I did these way back in ’91 for The New Tomorrowland. Done as massive billboards that would be situated around Tomorrowland as it was being redesigned as a SPACEPORT at the time. A much better idea than what it’s become, but vehicles were present throughout the land and I was designing tons at Imagineering.

But after 3 years of design, they pulled the plug and Tomorrwland began it’s re-design process again… to become Disoveryland.
