Disneyland Limited Time Magic Chalk Art Festival, October 2013

In October were honored to be invited to complete a street painting at Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Having just attended a pirate theme birthday party for our godsons, we settled on a pirate image. We had so many delicious photos of this motley crew of party pirates that the image was easy to complete.

We decided to do two separate images: one of a boy playing with Jake's pirate ship and a second larger image of the pirate crew.
