Fantasyland 1964

I sat down to doodle in photoshop, just to relax, and unwind with no particular goal.  This is what happened...
I love all things vintage, especially vintage Disney.
As time goes on, aesthetics change, culture changes, and thus Disneyland grows and changes.   Disneyland acts as a sort of cultural weathervane.  Though the skeleton of the park remains the same, the ideas on the surface evolve and take new shapes as the audience grows and evolves.  The idea of Fantasyland is simple, but the look was certainly different in the 60's.  The publics perceptions and expectations grow, and today, Fantasyland looks completely different.  I still love the fresh and contemporary simplicity of the 50's and 60's Disneyland.
