Made during COVID times. I've really been missing Disneyland, so I poured that into reimagining the land signage. I know Disney has begun changing fantasyland to these gorgeous light pinks and cobalt blues, but to me it'll always be purple and gold with a hint of green for villain mischief.
Fantasyland was inspired by a House Industries style I saw on Instagram.

A lot of analog sketching went into each letter for this guy to ensure it was balanced.
