Imagination, nostalgia and innocence are just a few words that came to mind when we saw this piece from illustrator Jez Tuya. When asked about his inspiration for the image, Jez said “I guess the whole idea of dressing up for Halloween, as well as looking back to the the things I did in my childhood, like building cardboard box forts, armor, etc., is what sparked the idea.” We think he captured that pretty darn well.
Jez is a freelance illustrator based in Wellington, New Zealand, who illustrates children’s books and school journals for a range of publishers and clients. He’s been doing that for well over a year now. For more of his work, check out his great blog. While you’re there, take a look at the children’s book he recently illustrated, “The Very Important Godwit” (Random House). Great stuff!
We thank Jez for his time and talent on this piece. It makes us all the more excited for the release of TOY STORY 3 on DVD and Blu-ray November 2. We are only a week and a half away!
