I’ll be signing these and other exclusive Disney products at D23 on Saturday, August 24 from 2:00 to 3:30 pm at Talent Central in the Anaheim Convention Center. These limited edition Enchanted Tiki Room Mouse Ears are part of Disney’s Designer Collection, featuring ear hats by Betsey Johnson, Vera Wang, Heidi Klum and other celebrity artists and designers. Mine are debuting at D23 and will be available at Disneyland and Disney World on August 28. @disneyd23 #enchantedtikiears #enchantedtikiroomears #enchantedtikiroom #waltdisneysenchantedtikiroom
I wrote about Shag’s show at Disneyland Resort’s “Wonderground Gallery” last year, and I am thrilled to see the prolific “Low Brow” artist back on the Disney Beat.
But he’s only one of a long list of creatives who are lending their talents to Disney and D23.
