New Artist Series Merchandise

If you like keeping up with the latest merchandise, then you will love this. Becca Goldenberg shared with Disney Parks Blog a brand new line that will be available at Walt Disney World, Disneyland and shopDisney.com:

 

“Just a couple of months ago, I told y’all about some exciting new merchandise in the Disney Artist Series Collection. Well, everyone knows you can never have enough Mickey swag, so I’m stoked to share with you two more artists who are making a splash with their own reimaginings of the legend himself, Mickey Mouse.

Several artists from around the globe submitted their redesigns of Mickey Mouse for consideration. We selected these for being unique and original, and then worked with them to make sure their versions of Mickey were a perfect balance of the Artist’s interpretation while keeping Mickey’s character integrity. We selected gender-neutral, streetwear-inspired silhouettes that could really showcase the unique artwork. Each Artist has a woven label that was incorporated through all the pieces in their group as an identifying mark to tie it all together. They’re available today at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, and on shopDisney.com. Check them out!

Designer Deborah Salles

After pursuing graphic design and illustration in college, she landed work at The Walt Disney Company Brazil as a product designer.

Designer Rafael Faria

Rafael Faria is another designer and artist whose work we’re loving. Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Rafael has worked for the visual communications segment for 17 years and has dedicated his time to creating exclusive and memorable projects at The Walt Disney Company Brazil. His passion goes beyond paper, shaping 2-D and 3-D creations ranging from creatures, mountains, valleys, and lakes, drawing inspiration from nature. His fresh take on Mickey Mouse is downright electrifying! See for yourself:

Prepare to stand out when you carry this vibrant and dynamic Mickey Mouse backpack. Rafael has incorporated a reimagined Mickey into this colorful urban-style artwork, blending a contemporary style with an ’80s sensibility to create a bag that puts the fun in functional. The Mickey Mouse hooded pullover uses that same urban style to add some color to whatever you’re wearing. And no, you don’t need 3D glasses for this Mickey Mouse T-shirt. It’s just Rafael’s optical trickery! This fun and colorful design will have you rubbing your eyes and exclaiming, “Oh boy!”
