Illustrator Jerrod Maruyama was asked by the folks at Disney to create a poster to help them celebrate the 50th anniversary of ‘It’s A Small World.’ Maruyama is an inspired choice for the event — his work is adorably twee, a celebration of joy and childhood, everything that Disney and the parks embrace. For ‘It’s A Small World‘ he introduced newer Disney characters to the canon of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.
Maruyama’s ‘It’s A Small World‘ design is being used all across Disney’s social media outlets. No word if prints will be available at the park.
