Frozen Walt Doll by Burt Payne 3 and Steve Hillenburg
There is a persistent rumor that Walt Disney was cyrogenically preserved in the basement of a building on the idyllic Cal Arts campus. The mystery surrounding his death coupled with the fact that it was rumored he spent thousands of dollars on cyrogenic research was the inspiration for the creation of the Frozen Walt Doll, a collaborative work of art by conceptual artist Burt Payne 3 and Sponge Bob Squarepants creator Steve Hillenberg. The first two editions, Black Tie and Red Tie, helped finance their education at CalArts, the prestigious art school founded by Walt Disney. The Frozen Walt Doll epitomizes their caustic humor and provides a wry commentary on the myths and magic of the Hollywood empire builder.
