Along with previewing his newest art and exclusive limited edition Vinylmation figures for the Disney Cruise Line cruise departing this weekend, Disney artist Noah has previewed art created for Epcot’s 30th anniversary which takes place October 1, 2012. Titled ‘The 21st Century Begins,’ the artwork will be available in multiple formats as well as a limited edition Vinylmation (10 each of 9″ and 3″ figures) which will be revealed later this week.
Noah’s art will be available at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival at the Festival Center (the former Wonders of Life Pavilion) in Future World. Noah also serves as this year’s festival artist and posters and other materials featuring the artwork he created for the festival will also be available.
Noah will be on both the Disney Cruise sailing for the release as well as at Walt Disney World during Epcot’s 30th Anniversary and the Food & Wine Festival Inaugural weekend. Visit the release info page to see his full appearance schedule.
Expected to be released in July 2012 (date TBA), the clothing line features Donald Duck and Goofy as they take on the bad boys of Disney: Peg Leg Pete, the Big Bad Wolf and even one of the Beagle Boys in races and old school competitions.
Noah will be making a signing appearance at the release event which will be formally announced closer to the release date.
Earlier this week, Vault 28, the Disney-branded contemporary fashion shop located in the Downtown Disney district of Disneyland launched its online shop via DisneyStore.com. Available at launch is the newly released Villains collection by Noah, the showpiece of which is the online-exclusive, made-to-order Maleficent 9″ Vinylmation, seen here.
On the exclusive Vinylmation figure, Maleficent is depicted in her guise as a fire-breathing dragon. Each piece is hand-painted and signed by the artist. The base coat is a blue-purple metallic flake with vivid lime green flames to accent Maleficent’s fiery attitude. While not limited to a specific production size due, the figure is available for a very limited time.
Maleficent also inspired a painting which is featured in a limited edition giclee as well as a women’s tee as are Cruelle de Vil (giclee / tee), Ursula (giclee / tee) and the Evil Queen (giclee / tee / long sleeve)
According to the Disney Insider Blog, the Noah Fine Art Collective will release a new collection of Muppets-inspired artwork, clothing, skate decks and Disney Vinylmation on November 18, 2011 at D-Street located in the Downtown Disney District of the Disneyland Resort.
Noah collaborated with fellow artists Jon Chase and Dez Einswell on the collection which Noah says, ‘allowed each of us to celebrate our favorite characters, and showcase them in non-traditional formats, all while staying true to the personalities of each character and each artist.’
All three artists will be making an appearance at D-Street on November 18 to support the launch of the collection, with specifics to be announced at a later date.
On October 15, Noah will debut his new Villain collection at Vault 28 in the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort. The collection is inspired by four of Disney’s greatest villains to date: Ursula the Sea Witch from The Little Mermaid, Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmatians, the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the most feared of them all, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.
Noah’s portraits of the villains will be available as short-sleeve tshirts (including long sleeve for the Evil Queen) as well as a special limited edition tshirt created just for the event. An original painting by Noah inspired by the portraits will also be available for $7500 and as a limited edition (295 pieces), canvas wrapped giclee for $295.
The Poison Apple custom Vinylmation seen here, which Noah debuted at the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, California later this year will also be available in a very limited quantity, and will be available in both 3″ ($150) and 9″ ($595) form. A wristband is required to purchase the Vinylmation figure and will be distributed behind the Rainforest Cafe beginning at 7 am.

Following the release of the second 9″ series, Noah will introduce three series of 3″ figures. All of the figures will be exclusive to the TRON Pop-Up Shop.
Disney Fine Artist Noah brings us this first look at his limited edition Disney Vinylmation inspired by Disney’s TRON: Legacy. The figures will be released at D Street on November 21 in the Downtown Disney Districts of both Walt Disney World and the Disneyland Resort. There will be 24 figures available for purchase at Disneyland, where Noah will be making a personal appearance and signing, and 12 at Walt Disney World.

On his official blog, Disney Fine Artist Noah, known in part for his extremely popular custom hand-painted Vinylmation collectibles (ranging in size from 9″ to 5′), has announced the official TRON: Legacy Vinylmation by Noah release will take place November 21 at Downtown Disney’s D Street at both the Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts.
According to the blog entry, more details on this highly anticipated event will be released tomorrow with photos available very soon. Be sure to check out his blog for more information as it becomes available.
In related events, the Noah Fine Art Gallery, which will be holding a special event in honor of fellow Disney Fine Artist Katie Kelly next weekend, has announced a sneak peek preview and sale on the official site featuring Katie’s Disney-inspired and other works which can be seen here.
Yesterday, the official Vinylmation blog offered a tease in the way of a photo of a portion of what is unquestionably a vinylmation figure (left). Also unquestionable is the airbrushed artistic flair of a Disney artist I’ve come to know and love ever since we met at the D23 Expo, Noah.
We reached out to Noah, who is also the resident artist of Disneyland’s D Street, for a comment but he was feeling a bit coy and wouldn’t quite give up the goods. He did, however, eventually tweet out this cryptic message along with a photo (right) which suspiciously looks like the front of a giant painted Mickey Mouse form. In fact, we even spotted what looks like it could very well be Noah’s signature right where Mickey’s nose would be.
As a fan of Noah’s work and having witnessed him put the finishing touches on his 5′ Sorcerer’s Apprentice vinylmation for the D23 Expo, I personally can’t wait to see the final World of Color figure which he’ll be premiering tonight at the World of Color media event.
Noah will also be making a special appearance at Disneyland’s D Street for a Vinylmation signing on August 14 from 2 – 5 pM PT. If you’ll be in the area, I highly encourage you check out the event and meet Noah.
The limited edition consists of 24 unique pieces, each handpainted, numbered and signed by Noah. Each comes in a custom construction lunchbox and retails for $495 + tax and will be available for sale as soon as the store opens for business.
The day is a special one for Disney Fine Artist Noah who makes D Street his home. As part of the day-long event, Noah will be on hand to offer guests a Create Your Own Vinylmation™ experience from 10 am – 12 pm and will then demonstrate painting a 5 foot tall Vinylmation figure as he did for the D23 Expo.
