Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom by Brian J. Smith11 x 14 inches, pen and ink on bristol
This piece is inspired by themes and concepts from Cory Doctorow’s book Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom. There’s about 100 characters in this image, about 75 of them are characters that have appeared in Disney’s Haunted Mansion ride some way or another - whether it be in a painting or as an animatronic.
There are quite a few easter eggs hidden within the image such as Cory Doctorow himself, Mickey Mouse (twice), a few characters from the book - but rather than point them out I’ll let you discover them yourself (it’ll probably be easier for people who are more familiar with the source material).
Working on possibly adding some colors digitally, nothing too complicated though.
