This is an illustration of an odd little place in Hamtramck Mi called Hamtramck Disney land. This is one of my favorite places in the Detroit Area. "Hamtramck Disneyland is a yard art folk art located in Hamtramck, Michigan owned by a man named Dmytro Szylak. Hamtramck Disneyland was started in 1992 and came to be finished in 1999. It is built on a 30 foot backyard on top of two adjacent garages. Dmytro was born in Ukraine, and also once lived in Germany. As he immigrated over to the United States he worked for General Motors, but soon after his retirement he felt the need to find a hobby. So Dmytro began piling together different objects some old, some new, and some bought, while others were hand crafted. This towering structure stands tall above his house, and garage. Over the course of 12 years, Dmytro continued to add different pieces to his work which from how it started has grown to be a collage." ----- This is a reproduction of an original doodle by Ms. Jodi Lynn.
