So, here we are, it’s December 24 and tonight is Christmas evening. I wish to all of you a Merry Christmas! Also, please note that D&M will be “closed” from tonight until January 6. No big announcement should happen in the meantime but i’ll keep an eye anyway on the news and will post if something really big was announced.
However, for this last post on Disney and more i have a GREAT Christmas gift for you, and it is never-seen-before artworks by Imagineer and Nautilus designer Harper Goff for Disneyland legendary “land that never was”, Tony Baxter’s “Discovery Bay”. Part of the concepts – specially the Nautilus and the Hyperion balloon – ended to be included in Disneyland Paris Discoveryland but this incredibly detailed Harper Goff artwork shows how the new land at Disneyland would have looked if it had been built.
The original Harper Goff artworks were sold in an auction last month and i did screen captures from the auction website pictures. In addition, i’ve “cleaned” the main one in B&W in the areas which were a bit dirty and even did a new version of it with a color background ( the one at the top ). But you also have the original B&W version below. The third picture, also from Harper Goff, is a different kind of concept-art showing the Nautilus and the Hyperion balloon .
So, have a great holidays, see you soon, and in the meantime i remind you to don’t miss the special offer on the acclaimed Disneyland Paris book which still run until my comeback in January. Check it HERE for full details and how to order the book.
