Brian always dreamed of working for his childhood hero, Walt Disney. It all started many years ago when he decided at age 5 that he wanted to work as an artist for the Disney organization. Every Sunday evening he watched ''Uncle Walt'' on The Wonderful World of Color. It was during those times that he developed an insatiable appetite for drawing the characters, especially Donald Duck.
Now, for the past twenty years, he has lived his dream by developing many of the merchandise items that can be seen at Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, Tokyo Disneyland, and many other areas of the Disney organization. As a member of a talented group known as Disney Design Group, Brian enjoys illustrating and designing the immense inventory of Disney characters for product application.
Blackmore likes to refer himself as the unofficial Land, Sea, and Air artist because his Mickey appears on the bow of the Disney Cruise Ship ''Dream'' as well as the Mickey on the Magical Express Bus, along with the fact that he helped create the Sailor Mickey Balloon for the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade!
Brian works along with some of the most creative minds in the Disney Theme Park Merchandise division. in his role as Principal Character Artist, he helps to guide and instruct the current staff of artists and product developers in the principles of Mickey and the gang. This is a role that he takes seriously, since he understands the positive impact that Walt Disney's creations have for people around the world.
Brian hopes to serve as an inspiration to all those who dream!
