Posted on Thursday, August 13th, 2015 by Peter Sciretta
D23 Expo 2015 kicks off on Friday in Anaheim, California, and pop culture screen print collectors should take note as the convention will see a ton of new officially licensed screen print releases from top artists like Mark Englert, JC Richard, Dave Perillo, Joe Dunn and more. We’ve covered some of the prints already on the site, but so many new prints have been posted since, I thought it was time for a good round up of what is available and where. Hit the jump to see the D23 Expo 2015 print releases.
Cyclops Print Works will be releasing a set of Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection handbills by artist and Disney art director Joe Dunn. The collectible 5” x 5” 5 Color Serigraph handbills will be passed out throughout the D23 Expo, one for each of the 12 short films included in the new Walt Disney Animation Studios Short Films Collection home video release. The handbills are rinted on Conventry Rag Vellum 320 gsm paper by Eclipse Workshop.

The first 23 fans who collect all 12 individual handbills will win a limited edition 20″ x 15″ uncut sheet of them, signed and numbered by Dunn (seen above). A Disney print limited to only 23 prints, thats going to be hard to come by. Apparently there are also some wildcard handbills thrown in as well.
Another release from Cyclops Print Works is Dave Perillo‘s Fantasia 75th Anniversary print. The 18” x 24” 5 color serigraph print is limited to 240 copies and will be on sale for $55.

Mark Englert‘s Beauty and the Beast-inspired print “She Really is a Funny Girl” will be released somewhere at the convention.

Printed by Eclipse Workshop and includes a Varnish Finish and Authenticity Seal. The officially licensed print will be on sale for $60.
Here’s a sneak preview of Dave Perillo‘s Jungle Cruise print. No further details are known at this time.

Mark Englert‘s Star Wars: The Force Awakens print will be available to fans at the Art Awakens booth (#1415). The 20 inch by 20 inch metal limited edition print (with the gray colors showing through to the metal) with proceeds to benefit UNICEF Kid Power initiative in the name of Star Wars: Force for Change. We’ve covered Mark Englert’s art many times in the past, which includes work based on Jurassic World, Jaws, Simpsons, Star Wars and more. We’ve been told there is a surprising low number of these prints, so if you don’t get this early on Friday it will likely sell out.
Gallery 1988 and Art Awakens is also releasing a companion print First Order version by DKNG Studios. Also printed on 20×20 metal and available at booth #1415 while supplies last. DKNG is yet another one of our favorite artists who we’ve written about many times over the past few years. This print is also very limited.
Disney Fine Arts by Collectors Edition is releasing a batch of prints by Eric Goldberg, who is probably most famous for animating Robin Williams’ Genie in Aladdin, but has also worked on “Get a Horse!” and did all of the Mickey Mouse animation for Disney California Adventure’s nighttime spectacular World of Color: Celebrate!
Eric Goldberg‘s “Genie’s D23 Vacation” will debut at D23 Expo, but might also be sold in Disney retail locations after the convention. A serigraph limited edition hand signed print of only 123 will be on sale for $175. A mounted lithograph on board version of this print with a 500 print run will be available for the more affordably price of $40. And the Framed Hand Drawn Original Ink on Paper will be on sale for $4,400for one lucky rich Disney fan.
Eric Goldberg‘s “The D23 Gang” is also available in different versions: as a Serigraph limited to only 123 prints, each hand signed by Eric Goldberg for $175. Another version will be Mounted Lithograph on Board with a Limited Edition of 500 for $40. And again, the Hand Drawn Original Ink on Paper will be available for $6,400 if someone can afford it.
The D23 Gang *exclusive to D23 and Disney retail locations
Serigraph – Limited Edition 123 – Hand Signed by Eric Goldberg – $175
Mounted Lithograph on Board – Limited Edition 500 – $40
Hand Drawn Original – Ink on Paper – $6,400 (Framed)
Goldberg will also be selling several prints based on drawings Goldberg did for the upcoming book An Animator’s Gallery: Eric Goldberg Draws the Disney Characters, a collection of drawings done for the upcoming Shanghai Disneyland resort (which will hit store shelves in September but available early at the D23 Expo).
Goldberg will be appearing in the Disney Fine Art booth (Hall B, booth 901) on Friday from noon to 2 p.m. and again from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. And on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon and again from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m.
And there will be more prints, this is just the prints that have been announced before the show. I know Cyclops Print Works has a lot of exclusive prints in the works and ACME Archives will also likely have some show exclusives.
