D23 CELEBRATES “23 DAYS OF DISNEY CHRISTMAS” WITH THE ULTIMATE FESTIVE ONLINE ART EXHIBIT AND SWEEPSTAKES

The Official Disney Fan Club Brings Together Celebrated Artists From Around The Walt Disney Company to Show Their Holiday Spirit—And D23 Members Have a Chance to Win Spectacular Artwork

BURBANK, Calif. – December 3, 2013 – Just in time to celebrate the season, D23: The Official Disney Fan Club has brought back “23 Days of Disney Christmas,” a gorgeous collection of work contributed by artists from nearly every corner of The Walt Disney Company, including Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Disney Television Animation, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts’ Disney Design Group, Disney Consumer Products, and more. Each day, starting today, December 3, D23.com will unveil a new piece of art that celebrates the holidays. The theme for 2013 is “The Ultimate Gift”—and D23 asked Disney artists what their favorite characters would most want for the holiday. The results are just as creative as the talents behind them, and 23 lucky D23 Members now have the chance win a lithograph of the work.

 

Disney Television Animation character designer Tara Billinger, who works on the new Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts, crafted a colorful holiday scene with the “fab six” (Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Pluto, and Goofy—with a “hidden Oswald” thrown in) carting their sleigh through the snow, ready to unwrap some holiday delights. Disney Consumer Products principal artist Steven Thompson presents a delightful illustration of Beast giving Belle her “ultimate gift”: a library card! Other participating creative talents from around the world of Disney include producer Don Hahn (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast), Disney Master Artist Dave Pacheco, Wander Over Yonder executive producer/creator Craig McCracken, Monsters University production designer Ricky Nierva, Disney Consumer Products lead artist Anthony Whitfield, Disney Television Animation’s Andy Suriano (Mickey Mouse cartoon shorts), Cris Bernabe-Sanchez of Disney Corporate Creative Resources, Monsters University character design art director Jason Deamer, and Gravity Falls storyboard artist Sabrina Cotugno—along with more than a dozen other Disney talents.

 

To add to the fun, D23 has launched the “23 Days of Disney Christmas Sweepstakes,” in which members of the Official Disney Fan Club can enter for a chance to win a lithograph of one of the pieces of artwork.
