Pinocchio – Tom Whalen Original

I absolutely admite Tom Whalen and all of his posters. If I could, I'd line my entertainment room with them. So naturally, I thought I'd learn from the best and attempt to recreate one of his designs. I chose one of his more simple designs which also features one of my favorite disney characters – Pinocchio.

I do now own, nor am I affiliated with, Disney properties or Tom Whalen – just an admirer wanting to learn some new techinques. :)
