Atomic CastleRegular price $100.00
"Atomic Castle" is a mid-century modern styled, high-quality print inspired by the vision of what a futuristic Magic Castle would look like back in the 1950's. The retro, fun shapes, colors and design also pay homage to my childhood influence of watching Flash Gordon. All prints are professionally printed, packaged, and shipped. Choose from multiple sizes and mediums.
Growing up my dad had a magazine subscription to Popular Mechanics. As an 8-year-old I loved looking at the technical illustrations in that magazine of what people in the 70’s thought the future was going to look like. In grade school I even started drawing my version of what I though the future was going to look like. They always had a lot of dome structures and rockets! Those drawings were inspired by the pictures I saw in Popular Mechanics, cartoons like The Jetsons, TV shows like Star Trek and movies like Star Wars.
The very first time I saw Cinderella’s Castle I had just arrived in Florida to start my internship at Walt Disney Feature Animation! It was much bigger and more beautiful than I expected! It didn’t matter how many times I saw it while working there, it always seemed magical to me. While working on this piece I wanted to capture the inspiration of my childhood, magazine art, cartoons, TV and movies and see how I would create my version of the futuristic castle now. With “Atomic Castle” I hope it makes us feel the magic and beauty of the present and inspires us to keep on dreaming of the future!
