Off the Page character sketches

I've heard about the character sketches from Off the Page. I love sketches would like to pick up a couple while we are at Disneyland later this year. I was wondering about a couple of things... Firstly, how much are they? Secondly, do they draw all Disney characters or is there a more limited selection? and finally can you watch your own drawing be done or do you just purchase from a selection of already drawn sketches.

Thanks for you replies!

Natalie

My daughter gets one or two of these every visit! If I remember correctly, it was between $35-40 unframed. There is a book of characters to choose from. They'll ask you to choose two colors to be used in the sketch. If you are unsure, they will suggest a combination that would work.

Every time we've gone they have been a bit backlogged. On average it takes a day or so for them to get to our sketch, so we order them on our first day.

Hope that helps!

When my daughter gets home I will have her get them out and I'll take pictures to post. They're really cute!

Oh! I heard through the grapevine that they also have an artist in the back of the Disneyana store too! We plan to check that out when we go in December.

Thank you so much! That has been so helpful! We'll definitely head over early in our stay. They're a great souvenir and easy to pack!

Thanks again,

Natalie

For 1 character, it's $35, for 2, it's $65, I think. Don't forget to add tax on top of that. I like to get one every visit as well! For 1 character, you get to choose 2 colors, for 2 you get to choose three. There's also a drawing of Mickey and Friends and Pooh and Friends, but I'm not sure how much they cost. If I remember correctly, it would be $95.

They have a fairly wide variety of characters, but the newest films aren't usually in the character book yet (ex. I don't think they have Merida in there yet)

I have yet to watch an artist work on my own drawing. Typically when I order a drawing, the artist is already working on another sketch. I also recommend to purchase the sketch early in the morning because the later you purchase, the later your sketch will be ready by.

If you don't want to wait, there's sketches available for purchase already. Also, take a look at the sketches of the month! Sometimes they come already framed (AKA way more expensive) but usually the frame comes with a little pin. They look very nice, but because you can't personalize framed sketches, I haven't justified spending the money for them yet.

Hope this helps!

I believe they have Carl, not sure if they've got Ellie though.

I've been looking for a Carl and Ellie one too, but I didn't see this sketch the last time I visited (Sept 9-11). Hopefully they've added it since then. I'll be on the lookout for it this weekend! I will also be updating this post with pictures of my sketches.

So when DBF and I first went to Disneyland, we stumbled upon these sketches and thought they were a really unique, awesome-looking, and very affordable souvenir, so we kind of made it a tradition to buy one on every trip (there have been one or two exceptions). Needless to say, our collection grew to this.











This one was a sketch of the month we found too cute to pass up




As the caption states, this was the one we got on DCA's Grand Re-Opening day.


This one was actually a birthday gift to me, but I included it anyway. Makes up for one of the trips we didn't buy one


And this one is our most recent one, we splurged on this one because we had seen it for like 3 months and wanted it the first day we saw it, but it was a little pricey for us at first. Still, it looked too awesome to pass up the third time around, especially since it was limited to a run of 23.

With the exception of the last one (which included the frame, custom matting and pin for a really hefty cost), we bought only the sketch and just used cheap $5 frames. We're no longer buying one on every visit since there's only so many characters we'd be interested in getting, but we are still looking for new, different, interesting sketches and our next one will most likely be an attraction sketch (though that Carl and Ellie one, if it's there, is really tempting too!).
