boo & sully

I loved this sketch and the finished piece is hard to part with! It’s available now either through Wonderground Gallery directly or WonderGround Gallery can take orders via email at merchandise.guest.services@disneyparks.com or by telephone at 877-560-6477.  Let mail order know that you’re interested in the Nidhi Chanani artwork from WonderGround Gallery West and they tell you if it’s currently available.

I’ll be back this weekend on Saturday from 5-9pm and Sunday from 4-7pm.

I hope to see you there!

p.s. I’m very enraged about the current immigrant imprisonment. I’m matching donation up to $500 on twitter. Donating is the only thing I can do right now but I MUST do something. Join me?

seattle tomorrow!

I will be speaking and signing books in Seattle tomorrow at Third Place Books in Seward Park. I hope to see you there!

Also I’ll be back at Disney this weekend for more live watercoloring and the release of my new Disney piece! If you’re interested in the original of my first watercolor of Baby Dory or the new Disney print please contact WonderGround Gallery. They can take orders via email at merchandise.guest.services@disneyparks.com or by telephone at 877-560-6477.  Just let Mail Order know that they are interested in the Nidhi Chanani artwork from WonderGround Gallery West and they would be happy to let them know if it’s currently available.

Hope to see you in Seattle or Anaheim!

Residency and Binny’s Diwali

My Disney residency begins this weekend! I will be painting live at the Wonderground Gallery in Downtown Disney every Saturday (5-9p) and Sunday (4-7p) this month.

Meanwhile I’m excited I have permission to share! I AM ILLUSTRATING A BOOK ABOUT DIWALI FOR Scholastic. A beautiful text by Thrity Umrigar, BINNY’S DIWALI will release fall 2020.

I LOVE DIWALI! I’m half way through the final art and I smile the entire time I’m drawing. It’s a dream project with a dream team. I’m very happy!!

I hope to see you sometime soon!

disney in june!

I’m returning to Disney’s Wonderground Gallery this June! It marks my 6th year working with them and the experience is lovely every time. The Wonderground Gallery is located in Downtown Disney and does not require park tickets for entry. I’ll be their artist-in-residence which means I’ll create watercolors live four weekends in a row. I’ve selected some of my favorite characters for the watercolors and I look forward to sharing them!

The piece above, “Imagination has no age” will release on June 15th between 2-4pm along with pieces from Michelle Bickford, Michael Murphy and Mcbiff .

Disney asked the artists involved to help celebrate the 60th anniversary of the matterhorn, monorail and submarine. I took it as an opportunity to push myself with a complex piece. I combined the three attractions with 25 (!!) classic Disney characters! Whew! It was a lot of work! Throughout I cursed myself because it was more challenging than I imagined. When I submitted the final illustration, Disney asked me to refine it. That never happened before! I wanted so much to push back and say it was fine! However, I know they don’t provide unwarranted feedback.

I stepped back and thought about the environment. It is just as important as the characters but my first attempt didn’t look that way. Harmony is important. I adjusted colors, added more texture and lighting. And as I completed it, adding the soft twinkles in the sky, a sense of pride washed over me. It was approved quickly thereafter.

In work like that, the journey isn’t pleasurable. However, I learn along the way and when I arrive at the destination, there is great joy. Earned joy.

In addition to the art release on the 15th, I’ll be painting June 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29 and 30, 2019. Saturdays from 5-9pm and Sundays from 4-7pm.

I hope to see you in June!

If you can’t make it to Disney can take orders via email at: merchandise.guest.services@disneyparks.com  or by telephone at: 877-560-6477.  Just let Mail Order know that you’re interested in the Nidhi Chanani artwork from WonderGround Gallery West and they would be happy to let you know if it’s currently available. Please be patient as they do take a bit to reply.
