Ever wonder how one gets their hands on an original sketch from a Pixar artist or a signed book from a director at the studio? Of course you have! Dice Tsutsumi, Art Director of Toy Story 3, has set up an auction to benefit Japan after the catastrophic events the country faced one year ago. With 100% of the proceeds going to the Mercy Corps Japan Recovery Fund, taking a look at the auction of these rare items is a no-brainer. Check out some of the awesome collectibles after the jump!
There will be four groups of items released, which will each be up for auction for six days. Please note that the auction is not Pixar-sponsored. The items were generously donated by those at the studio to help the people of Japan.
In this first round, the cool items include a Brave hat signed by director Mark Andrews, an Art of Toy Story 3 book signed by director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson, an Art of WALL-E book signed by director Andrew Stanton, and an out-of-print Pixar at the Museum of Modern Art book signed by artist Tia Kratter:
