Issue 50 of Batgirl came out today and it’s the last issue that @babsdraws, @cameron-stewart, and @brendenfletcher worked on as a team! I wanted to create a little tribute piece to thank them for their all around awesomeness and for getting tons of new readers, myself included, into the Batgirl franchise! ☺️
Oddly enough I’ve had this sketch lying around since they announced the series but never finished it! I figured it was the perfect time to revisit it and wrap it all up!
When Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress made its grand debut at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, it quickly became one of the fair’s most-visited pavilions and delighted guests with its musical story of progress and optimism. The theater system, where guests would stay seated and rotate around different scenes, and the flashy new Audio Animatronics wowed visitors young and old. The overwhelming success inspired Walt and the Imagineers to include the attraction in their plans for 1967’s New Tomorrowland at Disneyland, shown here in a piece by John Hench. While the attraction has since moved to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, its legacy has continued on, and this great big beautiful tomorrow is the longest running stage show in the history of American theater.
I’m happy to be included in Square Carousel’s challenge 88: Love. I have a bunch of designs to add around them but here is the start. Two queens sizing each other up, I do believe there is love in competitiveness. (I’ve been reading and watching to much stuff on the war of the roses)
Pink kelpie-corn carousel. <3 A bit different to my usual stuff (duskier colours, a different shading&background style, etc) but not bad for an experiment…even if the roses aren’t shaded purely out of laziness and not for aesthetic reasons.
another quick go at that carousel horse. i can’t find a harness colour i’m happy with, i feel like red may work better than blue for the reins/noseband so idk. the whole horse (+ harness) is carved from wood
