NEVERLAND [70 icons]  
All icons are made from real images of Michael Jackson's Neverland estate. I worked to preserve that sense of magic, sparkle, and mystery. Many of the artifacts & rides were modeled after or custom-made by the creations and creators of the original Disneyland.

Countless sick children were taken to enjoy the popstar's playground paradise free of charge; a state-of-the-art radiation center was even furbished into the basement, so that cancer patients would not have to miss a single treatment in order to visit; beds and special rooms with clear walls were installed into the movie theaters to accommodate those bedridden. Marlon Brando was known to be personally chauffeured around by Mr. Jackson, in decorated golf-carts, to cheer up the aged actor.

The world can be a better place, Michael proved that.

Martin Bashir: "Neverland is an extraordinary, a breathtaking, a stupendous, and exhilarating, and amazing place. I can't gather together words to describe Neverland. What inspired you to make a home like this?"

Michael Jackson: "It was so easy because it was me being myself, creating things that I love. And what I love, kids happen to love...I'm just putting behind the gates everything I never got to do when I was a kid."

we could never forget about neverland to make icons of!
☆: MJ - ...theidolhands on November 1st, 2009 08:04 pm (UTC)
It breaks my heart that they tore it away from him, at the same time that I can't help admiring all the efforts.

When in doubt, create!

Marlon Brando was known to be personally chauffeured around by Mr. Jackson, in decorated golf-carts, to cheer up the aged actor.

I didn't know that! [Where'd you hear/read that?] That is heartbreakingly sweet. Oh, and your icons are loveliness.
☆: MJ - ...theidolhands on November 1st, 2009 08:07 pm (UTC)
From Miko Brando, an interview not too long ago, there should be live footage of it even. I also knew that Michael spoke to him on the phone all the time.

I would honestly fill this entire page to the letter maximum if I listed every amazingly generous thing that I've read or heard about Michael doing. It was overwhelming when I was researching him.

Oh these are so beautiful! You have a lovely aesthetic sense. I am especially drawn to the clock/watch ones. Very dream-like and enchanting. Thank you.
☆: MJ - ...theidolhands on November 1st, 2009 08:19 pm (UTC)
I truly appreciate you saying that and looking.

Your icon is probably my favorite moment from the film.

On account of everything that I enjoy in my life, I've never seen anything of Neverland until now.

Thank you for making these. ♥
☆: MJ - ...theidolhands on November 1st, 2009 10:12 pm (UTC)
That's very cool, I'm happy to bring it to light for new people.

You're most welcome.

p.s. Terrific Up icon.

totally awesome and very beautiful!! I am huge fans of Peter Pan too.. Wonderful icons! Great job!!
☆: MJ - ...theidolhands on November 2nd, 2009 03:15 am (UTC)
Michael was such an interesting combination of dimensions. 62 & 63 are meant to be specifically Peter Pan (with wings), but of course the entire theme of Neverland prevails the scene.

Thank you so much for stopping by (and gracing me with another great MJ icon).
