Newspaper Illustrator’s Dream Assignment – Go to Disneyland and draw

Lisa Mertins is an accomplished illustrator who works for the OC Register. She recently completed a dream assignment which consisted of going to Disneyland and drawing. That’s a tough day’s work, let me tell you.

Her sketches and the results of her ‘Animation Academy’ class inside California Adventure’s Animation Building are posted on the Around Disney blog. But also be sure to visit her personal blog where she’s added additional Disney sketches (a Mary Blair Alice and Jack Skellington in the window).
