Artist Recreates Fairytale Moments By Placing Paper Cutouts Inside Disneyland

By day, Keith Lapinig works as an Interactive Design Manager at Disney, but his passion for his work doesn’t stop after office hours. In his spare time, Lapinig creates whimsical paper cutouts of classic Disney characters and holds them up to real life scenes at Disneyland parks. The artist then photographs each paper art composition and posts them on Instagram, creating his own fairytale narratives.

Inspired by the work of other paper cutout artists, Lapinig’s series began in May 2018 with the desire to “bring that paper magic into Disneyland.” From the Maleficent dragon towering over Sleeping Beauty’s castle to Snow White fetching water at her wishing well, each paper silhouette is carefully cut from black card. “This style with its interaction between the paper illustration and the environment intrigued me,” Lapinig admits. “When translating to my art, I wanted the cutouts to interact with an entire environment, but a detailed illustration would get lost in the composition so I resorted to using a solid color.”

1980 Concept Poster For The Empire Strikes Back Sold By Heritage Auctions For $26,400

A rare Star Wars concept poster printed for the 1980 sequel The Empire Strikes Back sold Sunday for $26,400 at Heritage Auctions, setting a world record as the most expensive movie poster from the space opera ever sold at auction.

The poster was estimated to sell for between $5,000 and $10,000 in Heritage Auctions’ Movie Poster Auction, which realized more than $1.6 million.

“This poster is considered to be one of the more rare posters in the entire Star Wars trilogy,” said Grey Smith, Director of Vintage Posters at Heritage Auctions. “This poster is unique as it features the complete Kastel artwork in the original color palette for the second in George Lucas’ trilogy.”

One of a handful of original examples known to exist, the poster was a trial run featuring art by artist Roger Kastel. Kastel took inspiration from a poster for Gone with the Wind for the film’s 1974 re-release. That poster features an image of Clark Gable carrying Vivien Leigh surrounded by flames. In Kastel’s poster, characters Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa share a similar embrace while surrounded by action scenes and a menacing visage of villain Darth Vader.

Perhaps done as a test printing of the International edition of the poster, this version includes images of Lando Calrissian, Boba Fett, Cloud City and more. When the studio made their final revisions, those additional elements were removed from the original Kastel design, as they were considered too busy.

The studio also went with a darker color scheme of mostly blues and purples, losing the vibrant reds and oranges from Kastel’s original vision.

Bernie Wrightson’s Frankenstein Showcased In Upcoming IDW Artist’s Edition

Bernie Wrightson is universally regarded as the finest horror artist of the last 50 years, and Frankenstein was his undisputed opus. IDW Publishing is proud to announce that this masterpiece of illustration will be presented in the Eisner Award-winning Artist’s Edition format for late next year.

As with all Artist’s Editions, each gorgeous plate will be reproduced from scans of the original art and printed at the same size they were drawn, with all the distinctive creative nuances that make original art unique – a perfect representation of the work in its original form.

“I’m incredibly pleased and somewhat stunned – it has been a dream of mine for years to do this book. It’s truly an honor,” says Artist’s Edition Editor Scott Dunbier.

In 1975, Wrightson was a founding member of The Studio, an art collective in Manhattan’s Chelsea District, alongside Jeff Jones, Michael Kaluta, and Barry Windsor-Smith. It was during his time at The Studio that he began work on Frankenstein, which was eventually published in the early 1980s by Marvel Comics. A sequel entitled Frankenstein Alive, Alive was released by IDW as a comic book series beginning in 2012 and will be collected as a hardcover this October.

Creator Bio

Bernie Wrightson (1948-2017) was an American artist known for his horror illustrations and comic books. His first professional comic work appeared in House of Mystery #179 in 1968. In 1971, with writer Len Wein, Wrightson co-created Swamp Thing for DC. He also co-created Destiny, later to become famous in the works of Neil Gaiman. He worked on Spider-Man, Batman, and The Punisher, and provided painted covers for Nevermore and Toe Tags, among many others. Later works include Frankenstein Alive, Alive; Dead She Said; The Ghoul; and Doc Macabre (IDW Publishing); all co-created with esteemed horror author Steve Niles.
