Learning From a Disneyland Paris Marvel Artist

The name “Marvel” means different things to different people. To some, it offers a chance to live out their dreams of becoming an artist. Thomas Smith and Disney Parks Blog recently shared the story of one such man from Disneyland Paris:

The world’s first Marvel-inspired hotel,  Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel, continues to excite and astound guests visiting Disneyland Paris from around the world. But for aspiring artists, this unique hotel also serves as an inspiration to chase their dreams.

Upon opening the hotel, Disneyland Paris organized a unique masterclass with Marvel Comics artist, Olivier Coipel, for students studying at a famous French artistic school, Gobelins, l’Ecole de l’Image, to learn about his journey to becoming one of the 110 Marvel artists who created art displayed at Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel.

Learn all about Olivier’s inspiring artistic experience and on how he redesigned and reinvented one of the most iconic superheroes of the Marvel universe, Thor, which is displayed on the second floor of the hotel.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
