[guestpost]Welcome back Tony Sherg, the acclaimed minimalist Disneyland poster artist. Recently he wasfeatured in Mashable, the tech news site. They called his designs, “charming posters that capture the essence of Disneyland.” See some of his previous work here. [/guestpost]
Hello again, I’m Disney fan-artist, Tony Sherg. My hobby is creating Disneyland posters for my favorite attractions and experiences. Today I would like to share with you the latest complete poster series that I have created entitled, “Dark Rides–A Disneyland Tradition.”
The focus of this particular series is based upon the classic Disneyland dark rides that have set the standard for storytelling, use of special effects, and audio-animatronic wizardry across the world. Many have tried to re-create Disney’s style of dark ride, but none ever seem to compare.
The Disneyland dark rides are something that I personally connect with on an emotional level. Growing up 15 minutes away from Disneyland is one of the greatest blessings, and to this day, I am still amazed how much I continue to love these attractions.
Of course, with my style of art I faced a few challenges with bringing these story-driven attractions to life in the form of my posters. Using the character’s appearance as the main focal point allowed me to visualize how I could break down the character’s features to the most minimal and recognizable level. I also wanted the overall color palette of this series to have a darker and more mysterious tone compared to some of my other works.
I hope that you enjoyed all of these Disneyland Minimalist posters. For more of my work, sign up for the Disney Dose newsletter or visit our Facebook page.

Happy Holidays, everyone! This is Tony. I hope you are all having a lovely December and are looking forward to what the new year will bring. Today, I’m here to present my latest Disneyland Minimalist series of attraction posters entitled “A Disney Holiday.”
This series is inspired by the timeless attractions and experiences at Disneyland during this special time of year, all with my style of minimalist artwork.
After every holiday firework show, snow falls as Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle comes to life.
“Haunted Mansion Holiday,” the attraction themed to the classic Tim Burton film the “Nightmare Before Christmas,” is the most complex of the Christmas holiday overlays. The highlight of the overlay is the gingerbread house that Disney culinary artists construct each year that sits in the main ballroom inside the attraction.
“it’s a Small World Holiday” turns the classic attraction into a celebration of the world holidays. “Jingle Bells” is combined with the classic “it’s a Small World” theme song to create a magical medley that gets you in the holiday spirit.
I shared five posters with you today, but I still have one more Christmas poster in the works that should come out sometime just before Christmas. Be sure to sign up for the Disney Dose newsletter and follow my Facebook page to be updated when the poster comes out.

Hi there! Disneyland Minimalist artist Tony Sherg here. I have been visiting Disneyland my whole life and I am constantly enamored with the magic and beauty that the park is filled with. Some time ago, I started to create posters for my favorite Disneyland attractions and now today I run a Facebook page and website where I continue to release new designs.
Each land, area or attraction has stories, details and history attached to it which is why I’m sure both you and I keep returning to Disneyland. The artistic style of each vastly different attraction at Disneyland is something that I have really tried to explore in my artwork. I chose Tomorrowland as my first series of posters because I felt it’s overall futuristic design and artistic integrity lie heavily on angular lines and shapes much like my artwork.
Tomorrowland will always hold a special place in my heart, I have always been fascinated with what the land was, is, and could be. Walt wanted Tomorrowland to be “a vista into a world of wondrous ideas, signifying man’s achievements… a step into the future, with predictions of constructive things to come.”
That idea of “signifying man’s achievements” has obviously changed over the years with the innovation of the Jet Pack, our journey to the Moon & Mars, and even the creation of technologically complex films such as Star Wars. With some of the park’s most popular attractions like Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters and Autopia, Tomorrowland today, is a shining example of a “world of wondrous ideas”.
