10 Awesome Artists To Look For At Epcot's Festival of the Arts 2019

My favorite Epcot festival starts this weekend, gang, and runs through February 25th - so make your plans now! The Festival of the Arts features new food, musical acts, live demonstrations, exclusive merch - allll the things - but the standout for me is, of course, THE ART. 

Disney has been great about recruiting fresh new artists for their WonderGround Tent at the Festival, many of whom I've been following for years. It's such a thrill to watch long-time friends and favorites getting pulled into the Disney family, so let me brag on my personal Top Ten this year, k? 


- Ashley Taylor
 

Ashley is a friend-of-a-friend and an inspiration for artists everywhere. I've heard so many stories of how hard she worked, drawing in her free time after work every night, never giving up - and a few years later she was touring the world with Her Universe. Amazing. So it's kind of fitting that two of Ashley's new Festival pieces feature Cinderella!
 
My favorite, though, is her STUNNING World Showcase print:


Ashley licenses a lot of her art on clothing through Her Universe, so I can't help but hope this ends up on a skirt someday. 

Here's a closer look at one those Cinderella pieces, which has LITERAL foreshadowing, you guys:
Love it. Watch for these prints and more at the Festival, and be sure to follow Ashley on IG! (She's a beacon of positivity and encouragement online, btw. I love that about her.)

 
- Jason Ratner 

Jason is a new find for me this year, but I am OVER THE MOON for the Festival prints he's debuting:

::Swooooooon::

(Thanks to those of you who sent this my way; I love that y'all think of me when you see great Figment stuff. :D)

But wait, Jason has more:

I love these colors!


Aren't they stunning? Go follow Jason here on IG to see more of his work. 

Also, all of these artists have their Festival schedules posted on their accounts, in case you'd like to meet them in person.


- June Kim


This was all I needed to see of June's Festival prints - I'M SOLD - but she just posted this sweet Tiki one, too!


June also has lots - and LOTS - of original work online, like this:




I'm especially loving her wooden coasters:


You can follow Kim on IG here, and also browse the rest of her prints and goodies here on Etsy. (Keep in mind the Disney stuff is only available through Disney, though!)


- Caley Hicks


I first met Caley years ago at a con, and have been following her art ever since. She had two fantastic Small World prints at the Festival last year, and is knocking it outta the park (heh) again for 2019 with these beauties:

Orange Bird is my fav, of course, but dig that Mansion sweetness!

Caley's non-Disney work is mostly geared toward fabric goods, check these out:



I want them all. Go see the rest of her pillows and blankets and comforters (which are AMAZEBALLS) here on Society6. Caley's also on Spoonflower, so look out, sewists. For the rest of you, follow her on IG!


- Jasmine Becket-Griffith 

Jasmine is the first artist I ever followed online, going back over two decades, if you can believe it. (Egadz.) She and her hubby Matt are Good People, and my gosh, can she paint:

 These are the teasers she's been releasing on Instagram:


Those eyes.

Jasmine has soooo much original work in addition to her licensed work, so if you like her style be sure to follow her on IG and go browse her website! She has literally thousands of prints and merch to choose from, so best of luck picking your favorites.


- Dave Perillo

 

I can't tell you how many years ago I started following Dave's work, but I've been smitten with his style ever since. I also squealed very loudly the first time I spotted his prints at the Disney Co-Op. because I'm a total art nerd and - again - THRILLED to see artists I know signing on with the Mouse.

I don't know yet if Dave's debuting anything new at the Festival, but here are more of his WonderGround prints to look for while you're there:


I'll also throw in an example of Dave's non-Disney work, because FRAGGLES:

Most of Dave's stuff is licensed and/or limited edition, but he has an online store with a few prints here. You can also follow him on IG!



- Kristen Tercek 



Kristin is another of my long-time favorites, and I think the first artist I "knew" to get picked up for WonderGround back in 2012. (I remember having to call - on a PHONE, whaaaat - the California store to buy her Oswald the Lucky Rabbit print way back then. Now Orlando has it's own WonderGround Gallery, thank goodness.) 

 Here's some of Kristin's WonderGround work from over the years:

I own small version of Donald and Figment, of course.

And here's some of Kristin's original work, because I think you'll like that, too:

Go browse Kristin's web store for all her fabulous prints (this banana split is on the wall here in my office, I love it), and of course follow her on IG for more!


- Chris Uminga

I found Chris's work at a con some years back, and instantly loved his glowy-eye style. Since then he's gone on to do some phenomenal stuff. I especially love his latest batch of figures for DC:


 Those glowing pupil-less eyes are kind of his trademark, though Chris does plenty without them, too.


Anyway, for the Festival you can look for that Wreck It Ralph print and this Chewy goodness:


I'm not sure if Chris' Ewok will be available, but I hope so, because I love this so much:

Chris mostly has those DC figures in his web store right now, but there are a few prints, too, so go check it out. Then follow him on IG for more!


- Jerrod Maruyama

Ahh, the creator of Hipster Mickey himself, the King of Cute, Jerrod!

Jerrod has a new Small World blind box set that keeps selling out:


    Plus he says he'll have lots of new art, so I'm pumped.

 Last year Jerrod had the BEST Epcot icons print:

... and since he posted this recently, I'm hoping that means this year he'll have just these two fellas on their own print:



I know, I'm predictable in my love of DF & Figgie. I'm OK with that.

(If you're new here, here's my hubby John as Dreamfinder, with the life-sized Figment we made ourselves.)


And last but not least:

- Danny Haas

 Danny also hasn't released his new Festival print yet, but it's gonna be something STAR WARS (woot!), so these past ones of his should give us a good idea of what to expect:


Danny's also the only one on this list who won't be at the WonderGround tent; he'll be over in the Acme Archives booth. 


If you like these, be sure to follow Danny on IG for more!


I hope these made you smile, Dizgeeks, and get you a little more excited for Epcot's Festival of the Arts this year! Or. if you can't get there in time, then I hope this at least gave you some great new artists to follow.

 I don't believe any of the Festival exclusive art will be available online, but if I learn differently I'll update this post with the proper links.

Now, let's give away some free art! And just to make it EXTRA special, I'm giving away prints by 3 of this year's Festival artists, all of which I purchased at WonderGround Gallery:



   (The Tiki print is by Joey Chou, another of my favorite Disney artists - but I ran out of room in my Top Ten, ha. [Sorry, Joey!] Anyway, go follow Joey on IG, too, and watch for him at the Festival!)

If you'd like to win any of these 3 prints, then just tell me in the comments which is your favorite to enter. (It's OK to say all 3!) I'll ship anywhere, so internationals welcome. I'll announce my 3 randomly selected winners in my very next post, so be sure to check back! Unclaimed art will go to the fastest commenter on FB, so you might follow me there, too. 

Happy commenting!

UPDATE: The give-away has ended!

Now let's announce the art winners from my last post!

The winner of Micky & Minnie is Margaret Balch
The winner of the retro Space Mountain is Vikki
and the winner of the Tiki Birds is Samantha Ferrins!

    My favourite is Mickey and Minnie flying their kite!


    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the Tiki Room one!!! Okay, the Trip to Tomorrow with space mountain is so cool, too...so I love both of them! Thanks for sharing the art - I totally wish I could hop on a plane and fly out to Florida for the festival, but by the time I spent all that money on tickets I would have blown my budget for art!

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's the tiki tiki tiki room for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Me and everyone else love the Tiki Print. It is embarrassing if I say that out all the rides and attractions at Disneyland, my favorite is still the Tiki Room? The atmosphere is perfect and it never fails to make me happy.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  32. They're all so lovely! But I especially love "Love Takes Flight".

    ReplyDelete
  33. All three, of course! And the one I personally like the least (this is like saying I like some chocolate better than others, I don't dislike the other chocolates, I mean, c'mon, it's chocolate!) would be THE perfect gift for my sister.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Space Mountain!!! I can't wait for this festival.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Could you enter me for the Joey Chou Tiki Birds print? It is absolutely gorgeous!
    Unsurprisingly I am also in love with June Kim's Tiki Bird print. I'm having some serious heart eyes for Ashley Taylor's art style, and both of Caley Hick's prints are so squarely up my alley it's not even funny.

    ReplyDelete
  36. All cute, but the rich jewel tones of that tiki print are calling my name...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love all three but especially Space Mountain!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love them all, but the tiki birds will always have a special place in my heart.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oooh, I love all three! Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Space Mtn or Tiki. Can’t wait to get back to the Festival this year.

    ReplyDelete
  41. We host a Tiki themed Canada day celebration every year, so that Tiki print would have the perfect home! But I'd be happy with any of them!

    ReplyDelete
  42. That Tiki Room print has to be my favorite by a hair, but they're all three gorgeous! Wish I didn't live all the way across the country from WDW/Epcot.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love the Space Mountain print! Events like this make me wish I lived closer to a park! Maybe one day I'll make it to one of the Epcot festivals.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I need that Mickey and Minnie one!!! But I'd love to be entered for all three.

    Also, I just found yesterday some art I bought from some of these folks last time that got misplaced during unpacking. I was so excited to find it and am so excited to see them here. XDD /adds EVERYONE on IG

    ReplyDelete
  54. I love all three of these, although I think love takes flight would be stolen by my daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I like Love Takes Flight, since Mickey is my favorite, but I really love the Tiki Birds print! Didn't see the Tiki Room until my 3rd trip to Disney World as an adult, and wished I hadn't waited so long. Great show!! Thanks for the entry into your contest for either print. :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. The trip of tomorrow is incredible, but they're all good!

    ReplyDelete
  57. In the tiki tiki tiki tiki tiki room!
    I would sing like the birds and croon like the flowers if I won!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I honestly thought Jerrod's Dreamfinder was an illustration of John's cosplay!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love the Space Mountain print - it would be almost as good as walking throug the front gates at DL, to have that in my offic!

    ReplyDelete
  82. I saw the Jerrod classic Epcot print on my last trip but not in the size I wanted (Though I don't think I found the Wonderground gallery - not sure where that's located)... but I love the print of his in your giveaway section!!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I love the Tiki Birbs! I have 2 Jasmine Star Wars prints and they're amazing! I also love all things Figment and Epcot. I just reserved the Boardwalk for our 10th anniversary trip for July.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Tiki room! I grew up in CA and Disneyland and had season passes when our kids were small. Everytime we visited Disney, we always visited the Tiki Room.

    ReplyDelete
  121. I bought a print of Love Takes Flight when I visited Disney a few years back, and it’s my favorite thing in my house. The other two are both amazing, and I can’t seem to pick a favorite!

    ReplyDelete
  122. The Tiki prinr, for sure! The Space Mountain is a close second, though!

    ReplyDelete
  123. That's a tough call between the Tiki Room and Space Mountain! Either would be fun.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Tiki Birds and Space Mountain are so awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Tiki birds! We are doing a Tiki room themed basement!

    ReplyDelete
  126. The tiki print is my favorite - we are doing our basement with an Enchanted Tiki Room theme, and the print is just so cool!

    ReplyDelete
  127. The Tiki Print is my favorite.

    It's a family tradition (started by my great-grandfather) to take a nap in the Tiki Room so I kind of have to try to win it for my bedroom -- or the toddler's room

    ReplyDelete
  128. Space Mountain! In two weeks my class will be studying our solar system. I have “travel bureau” type posters that NASA made and this would fit right in.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Love the tiki print, and how the song starts playing in my head

    ReplyDelete
  130. I love all three, but who wouldn't !?! 😍

    ReplyDelete
  131. Oh my gosh, that art is amazing!! I hope one or two of those artists make it up to Raleigh SuperCon near me in July! I would love to be entered in to win either the Space Mountain or the Tiki room. I actually got a little post card of the Mr. Toad's Wild Ride art you featured, and seeing more of his art just made my day!

    ReplyDelete
  132. I want to go to this festival sooooooo much! Please enter me for Joey Chou's Tiki Room print. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  133. I'm in love with the tiki birds print! ��

    ReplyDelete
  134. Aahhhh, so cool! I would choose Tiki!

    I got Dave’s Space Mountain print and Jerrod’s Hipster Mickey on my last trip to Disney. So cool to learn more about the artists!

    ReplyDelete
  135. Love Takes Flight and the Tiki Birds are just hecking adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  136. I love the tiki one. But the Space Mountain one is cute too.

    ReplyDelete
  137. I'd love any of the 3 prints please! My cousins and aunt are visiting Disney just to see the art festival!

    ReplyDelete
  138. Love them all, but have to say my favorite is the Tiki birds because I just love Joey Chou's at! My husband and I are Disney art people, and is say that 90% of out collection is Joey's wish! I just told my husband's I wish the arts festival was still going on during our trip and he said it's probably better (for our pocketbook) that it isn't. We've never been able to resist Disney art, even when we have no real place to hang it!

    PS. I just love the colors in that works showcase print by Ashley Taylor! It would make a great Her Universe skirt!!!

    ReplyDelete
  139. I'm a HUGE fan of Jerrod Maruyama's work, so that is of course my fav. But, TIKi! Anything tiki-esque has a place in my heart and home as well. Totally digging this tiki room as well.(Shout out to Ashley Taylor. I agree that showcase art needs to find it's way to Ashley Eckstein and her universe.)

    ReplyDelete
  140. Oh wow, I love those coasters! And the Cinderella print with the literal foreshadowing is awesome! I'd love to be entered for The Trip of Tomorrow or Love Takes Flight. :-)

    ReplyDelete

  153. Love them all! I bought a 5x7 postcard of "Friends in Flight" by John Coulter at the WonderGround Gallery this summer - used it as a page in my scrapbook! Loved all the art I saw there in July, and will be looking for some of these come March!

  158. I have a set of retro Disney postcards framed in my office, so the Tiki Room or space print would be right up my alley.

  159. I adore the tiki birds and the space mountain prints! (and, let's be honest, a healthy portion of your giveaway board.)

  160. I'd just like to put in a totally unsolicited plug for the amazing artwork of El Gato Gomez! She has an uncanny gift for recreating the look of mid-century graphic design and pop art. Many of her pieces have Disney tie-ins, are inspired by classic sci-fi or horror, or other fandoms. Also, lots of cats!
