It’s been a long time coming but here is the playfield artwork for Jersey Jack Pinball’s Wizard of Oz Pinball machine. According to the artist Greg Freres, who has been working on this since last July:
“Welcome to the long-awaited WB-approved playfield art for the Wizard of Oz. I’ve read so many posts over the past couple months and understood the pain y’all were going through. I was inspired by many of your posts when you first saw the castle playfield so thanks for helping me get through the last stages of the design process. I am still not used to having so many people be so aware of a project…it’s been a bit unnerving to say the least.
When we first started the project there were two major elements that I used as the springboard – the fact that we were going to use “hand-drawn” artwork and the idea that the playfield was somehow divided between the Good Witch/Bad Witch sides of the storyline. And when Joe’s design started coming to life and there really was a nice division between the two sides this was a great starting point to think about how the art would also be divided.”
