Aulani Desktop Wallpaper on the Disney Parks Blog!

Aloha from sunny Florida!  Last month, I've  made my debut on the Official Disney Parks Blog with a desktop wallpaper depicting Disney Vacation Club's newest location...Disney's Aulani at Ko Olina, Hawai'i!

As you've seen in my other art, I tend to favor two-dimensional "head-on" scenes versus angled, perspective scenes...so creating this desktop wallpaper presented a little bit of a challenge for me.  Originally, I wanted to go with a "vintage travel poster" kind of look...using very simple shapes, loads of gradients, and almost zero realism.  I did, however, take a stab at a dimensional image by using a recent photo of the lobby building as my template.

My original concept for the Aulani Desktop Wallpaper

After some feedback from Disney Vacation Club and the Aulani Cultural Committee, more detail and color was added to produce the piece you see on the Disney Parks Blog today.  Head on over to the official Disney Parks Blog today to download it for free here!
