Meet the Artist
It's wonderful of you to stop by! I'm Hayden Evans, and I'm an artist, illustrator, and designer. My work is trademarked with a vibrant charm and endearing irreverence that seeks to celebrate my love of popular culture with mid-century style and flair.
I grew up in Idaho, right in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, and now reside in Southern California. The dreams I developed as a young boy in a small town have carried me to where I am now, and I look forward to continued opportunities to realize those dreams in creating artwork and designs for those cultural entities that I love most. As of now, I am currently freelancing and running an active Etsy shop. I've made over 2,400 sales, and my 5-star rated shop boasts over 650 5-star reviews.
My artwork is a joyful expression of my own optimistic nature, and just as my designs celebrate the humor, uniqueness, and diversity of the human experience, so too do I seek to bring that same open-mindedness and heart to whatever team or project I'm a part of. I am proud that quality work, a keen attention to detail and style, sincerity, friendliness, and professionalism have been consistent points of praise I have received from clients and customers since I began promoting my art in earnest in 2015.
Believe you have an idea or project that my art would help you with, or a gallery I'd be a good fit for? Talk with me! Let's make something wonderful together.

WALT DISNEY COMPANY
Artist; Disneyland Resort Enhancement
June 2022 - November 2023
I had the incredible honor of being a part of a small design team, focused on designing and elevating the permanent and seasonal display projects for the Disneyland Resort, including but not limited to: seasonal holiday decor, window displays, and illustrations and designs found throughout various attractions and park destinations. This role was highly unique in that I not only designed concept art with visual appeal and appropriate scope and theming, but saw these designs through concept, sourcing, fabrication, and installation, having a hand in every step of the process.
Some of my notable projects include:
Window displays throughout Main Street USA in Disneyland Park for the Walt Disney Company's 100th Anniversary Celebration
An entirely new holiday decor package with innumerable new design elements (including murals, banners, signage, large-scale rugs/flooring, window cling graphics, holiday decorations, and more) for the historic Disneyland Hotel.
Window display for Mlle. Antoinette's Parfumerie in New Orleans Square (coming soon!)
Holiday decor package for the not-yet-open Pixar Place Hotel (coming soon!)
WALT DISNEY COMPANY
October 2013 - December 2021
In my time with the Walt Disney Company, I have held many roles and positions (from Disney Store to the Disneyland Resort as a Lead and Trainer at various locations) but regardless of my title or responsibilities, I consistently: enthusiastically providing exceptional guest service; maintaining high-standards of safety; individually motivated in team-centered environment.
