Herb was already a well known illustrator for motion pictures (Mutiny on the Bounty, David Copperfield, The Good Earth) and had worked at the Disney Studio (his circus travels came into play on Dumbo) when Walt Disney asked him to create the first overall drawing of Disneyland in 1953, launching a storied career in Disney park design and illustration. But despite his Disney work, Herb never stopped painting from his travel sketchbook, and especially from property he owned just south of Carmel, California. He loved, and captured the spirit of, the ocean around Point Lobos. This painting (the original is owned by the Buzz Price family) won a California watercolor prize.
Disney Artists and Friends Limited Edition Fine Art Prints
For about a dozen years beginning in the late 1960’s, a group of Disney
designers and their spouses, headed originally by Richard Irvine and
his wife Ann, raised scholarship funds for art students. A yearly art
exhibit and sale was held; the very first show, featuring the work of
Herb Ryman, was held at the Hancock Park home of Disney Legend
Harrison “Buzz” Price and his wife, Anne Price. Each year, an artist’s
work was reproduced for the event. The prints shown below are the
very prints from those DAFCA (Disney Artists & Friends of CalArts)
shows. Now these prints (with original signatures by the artists) are available for sale
to the public, many for the first time. All proceeds support the
students of Ryman Arts.
