Posted in News on June 29th, 2015 by kevin-john

Disneyland celebrates the 1969 opening of the Haunted Mansion on August 9th, 2014. In recognition of the 45th anniversary of the attraction, Disney looked to Kevin-John to create a piece for the ghoulish estate.

The exclusive watercolor original art, tiled “Tombstones Quake,” features the caricaturized graveyard caretaker searching the outside premises of the Haunted Mansion.

As this piece incorporates a different style for Kevin-John, the artist turned to the artistic stylings of the Scooby-Doo cartoons of his childhood for inspiration on the look and feel for this piece.

This artwork is exclusive to Disney Parks. For prints, please call Disney Gallery Arts at 877-560-6577, and ask for Tombstones Quake by Kevin-John.
