Back to work after a busy July! I've been thinking for years about designing something in tribute to Robin Williams. Such an amazing talent, taken too soon. I... loved him in most everything he did, from Mork to Good Will Hunting to Night at the Museum . And of course he was terrific as the voice of the Genie in Aladdin! I chose this pose to honor him, full of life and fun, heart and soul an entertainer. I think it works pretty well. What do you think?
Like most folks, it’s rare that I’m “caught up” at work. I’m not complaining! I like to stay busy. But it’s great when I can squeeze in time to work on a speci...al project. Like this one. I’ve been thinking for a while about an illustrated ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. Either as a finished book or maybe even a coloring book. I’ve finally had some time the last few weeks to sit down and put some ideas on paper. Here are some initial sketches, just a start but I’m liking them so far. Let me know what you think!
Should be another great piece.
Just to show you what a dedicated guy I am, this is what I’m working on on my birthday! Actually this has been huge fun, my gift to me! It’s great to be able ...to celebrate my birthday and Christmas at once!

Shortly after I posted the color work for this new Aladdin design I got a message from a friend on Facebook suggesting I add Raja the tiger to the scsne. Here'...s the revised version, I think it was a great idea! Thanks April! And everyone, please keep the ideas and suggestions coming. I love it! (Still misspelled Aladdin!)
It looks like another great piece will soon be a reality. Would you buy this?
You are blessed with great talent and to work on such a special project.
I’m traveling next week to Fort Bragg, NC for the dedication of this bronze I created for the Headquarters, United States Army Special Operations Aviation Comma...nd. Here’s a preview pic, finishing up the installation. This has been a very special project for me. The men and women of Special Operations risk their lives on a daily basis for our country. The opportunity to honor them this way is one of the highlights of my career.
Just one more Disney Mother’s Day piece before I head down to Disneyworld. (I particularly like this one, it’s for mothers with sons who may have a flaw or two... but still keep going!) Looking forward to my trip to Orlando. If you’re in the area come see me tomorrow, May 12 from 10am to noon at Epcot Mouse Gear. Or on Saturday I’ll be at Disney Springs Art of Disney (that’s outside the parks so no admission required) from 10am to noon.
Go visit Jim Shore if you will be at Disney.
I like it. What do you think?
Jim Shore will be at Walt Disney World signing pieces. He will be at Epcot on May 12th and Art of Disney on May 13th. Take your mom and get her a signed piece for Mothers Day.
Looking forward to a trip to Walt Disney World in just a couple of weeks! I’ll be signing at Mouse Gear in Epcot from 10am to noon on Friday the 12th then at th...e Art of Disney from 10am to noon on Saturday the 13th. We’ll have plenty of things to see and talk about, including this new Figment design. I had great fun with him! I love how the colors turned out and particularly love his expression! So come out to see us if you get the chance. That’s Mother’s Day weekend so bring the whole family. I think I will!
