Gillette produced a set of paintings of the same name in 2010 - "Dismayland" - five years later, the American was invited by Banksy's director to work on the Dismaland project.
Jeff and his wife spent two days making hundreds of distressed Mickey Mouse earbuds from paint jar lids for park staff.

Gillette's participation in Dismaland was so successful that a subsequent exhibition of 15 of her paintings entitled Post Dismal took place at the Lawrence Alkin Gallery in London, with many works clearly inspired by the Banksy project.
