Retro '71

After such amazing response to the first Retro '71 Haunted Mansion shirt, I decided to design another concept based on this all-time favorite attraction.
This week's design is inspired by the vintage Disneyland Record and Book series. The original product was designed for Disneyland and features a stunning 24 page book that accompanied the long playing record with some amazing illustrations. I adapted one of the illustrations to feature Walt Disney World's Mansion instead of Disneyland’s, and I changed up the color palette. It was tricky tracking down that amazing font used on those old Haunted Mansion vinyls.

I added the original Walt Disney World Resort logo to the bottom of the art and scaled back the opacity to give it a worn, ghostly look.  Overall, it's a very vintage homage to one of my favorite attractions at the parks. 

Well that's about it for this week’s Retro '71 concept. Turn in Friday for an all new Designerland Attraction Soundboard and have a great week! Thanks for stopping by
