Disneyland Billboard Design 1955


Disneyland Billboard Design 1955

A fabulous concept for a freeway billboard promoting Walt Disney's new playland in Anaheim. Pastel and gouache. Artist unknown.

Note the proposed Monstro the Whale water slide attraction, and the knights dukin' it out in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle! One of the most fun pieces of original Disneyland artwork I've ever seen.

Wow Kevin- very nice drawing. I like how the Castle would come up from the billboard. I also assume the letters would be up from the billboard. This would be very eye catching.
