Randy Noble (Disney Design Group artist and Vinylmation creator) Interview



Hello and welcome to The WDW Radio Show – Your Walt Disney World Information Station. I am your host, Lou Mongello, and this is show #218 for the week of April 17, 2011.

An important part of our Disney vacations include not just the memories we return with, but sometimes the souvenirs, collectibles or gifts for others that we come home with as well. And often times, the collectible, whether it be as small and simple as a pin to something more elaborate is truly a work of art. This week, I want to introduce you to one of the very talented artists that makes those souvenirs come to life. He is Randle Noble from the Disney Design Group, and in addition to his work and contributions to special events such as Star Wars Weekends, he is also the founder and father of one of the newest and largest Disney collecting crazes – Vinylmation. We’ll talk about his early work and inspiration, career at Disney, the Vinylmation craze, and he’ll offer advice to those listening who dream their own dreams of working for Disney.

I’ll have updated information about upcoming Meets of the Month in Walt Disney World, then play more of your voicemails at the end of the show, so sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode of the WDW Radio Show.

Thanks for listening! Be sure to tune in next week!

    Excellent show Lou!!! Really great to hear an interview with Randy and so glad to hear that he had that inspiration for Vinylmation! As a big fan of Japanese vinyl and other ‘comic book’ collectables I was so excited when Disney launched their very own version….I now have a growing collection!
