WonderGround Gallery July Artist in Residence is Amy Mebberson

promsisters_web

There are a few Disney fan art creators who I feel Disney should scoop up immediately and mass produce their art. Amy Mebberson, of Pocket Princesses comic strip fame, is one of them. As it turns out, Mebberson actually does work for Disney. They’re not creating Pocket Princess vinylmation dolls at the moment, but they are doing the next best thing. She’ll be the artist in residence July 4 – July 20 at the WonderGround Gallery in Anaheim’s Downtown Disney District. Look for appearances on July 4-6, 11-13, 18 – 20 from 6-10p.m. each night.

I hope you’ll stop by and say hi to her for me when she’s at WonderGround.
