Hey all you Vinylmation fans!
Looks like we’re going to San Francisco… Be sure to wear your Disney Store gear!
To celebrate the release of the Lombard St. 3’’ Vinylmation™, our San Francisco Stockton Street store will be opening early at 8am on Saturday, May 12th for an exclusive Artist Signing event. Vinylmation artist, Enrique Pita, will be present from 8am to 10am to meet fans and sign figures that he is responsible for designing.
Enrique Pita – Senior Designer
For Disney Store Senior Designer, Enrique Pita, it’s always been a dream to work for Disney. Born in Havana, Cuba, Enrique moved to the US in 1980 and studied commercial art design at LA Trade Tech College. Since then, Enrique used his expertise to expand his career throughout a number of industries including print press, typography, illustration and graphic design for companies like Guess, Tiltworks and Jerry Leigh. At Disney Store, Enrique creates artwork for everything from t-shirt graphics, styleguides to Vinylmation. His recent creations include Vinylmation from the Furry Friends, Robots, Disney Villains 2 and City Specific series. An avid Disney fan, Enrique calls himself a “collector who creates collectibles”, and is proud to show off his robust collection of Disney figurines both at home and in the office.
We kindly ask that fans do not line up prior to 7:00 am. Enrique will only sign figures that he designed himself. There will be a purchase limit of eight (8) 3-inch Vinylmation™ figures per guest per day and signing limit of two (2) figures per guest, while supplies last (Note – talent appearance is subject to change without notice).
Who’s planning on heading to the Stockton Street store to get their Vinylmation pieces signed? What do you think of the Lombard St. Vinylmation? I love Enrique’s interpretation of the famous street!
