Paradiso 37 Downtown Disney and Alex

27 August, 2009

I went to Disney first tiem of my life when I was 15, I didn't even know that I wanted to be an artist or that one day I ll be part of a team that designed all these beautiful buildings and sceneries that I admired. I always thought that these designs were created by some kind of supernatural artists and I never thought that I would be one of them. Here is a part of my experience.......

2 illustrations I created one for the hallway pointing the restrooms and the left one Nappa valley traveling poster.

I sneaked my name in one of the Wine labels
"vin de Pays le Alek" ( little french) hahaha

Digital Mural Layout
Mural for the back side of the building
Mural for above the main entry of the building.

Concept renderings

These coupel of months I ve been working like crazy, redesigning my personal site, developing some new ideas and also working full time for Raleigh Design in Winter Park Fl. My boss Chris Raleigh is the grandson of the great American illustrator Henry Raleigh, and he is a very known interior designer in the themed Restaurant and Hospitality industry. These last year we had been woring on a new Restaurant for Downtown Disney in Orlando, Fl with E-brands restaurants, Paradiso 37. I am the in house artist and I am responsible for the conceptulization and execution of any art that goes into the restaurant design also responsible for rendering our concepts. Fpr this Restaurant I created 5 exterior murals to be painted liek ghost signs, a wall mural that wraps around the wine bar area 3 original illustrations that were framed and hanged on the walls and we hand painted post stamps from around South America on the interior walls. So here are some sneak peeks in the creation of a themed Restaurant. Also you can see on this site the pictures from the opening day, I am actually in a picture with Chris Raleigh handling the hanging of the artwork. (weird)
I hope you like them
