Over the teeth and past the gums...

"Say Ahhhh" Original acrylic painting by Jody Daily

"We enter Storybookland by being swallowed up by Monstro the Whale - the very same whale that swallowed Pinocchio..." The pleasant voice of our pretty hostess doesn't sound at all concerned, as our little canal boat heads straight into the gaping jaws of Monstro. Dad is too busy admiring her to take notice of the coming danger, but our intrepid kid-in-the-striped-shirt is ready for anything.

Jody's third illustration for Disneyland also features the Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship Restaurant and Skull Rock. I think it's strange that Disneyland has not chosen to release matted prints of this image yet. It's one of my absolute favorites.

Another fun painting, it reminds me of those wonderful "Golden Book" illustrations of the past.

I remember being in awe of Monstro as a kid. My grandmother was the one who pointed out that his eye would slowly open and close- he held the same kind of fascination for me that dinosaurs do for all kids: a huge powerful animal that is beautiful but more than a little dangerous.
