What up fishes?! This month’s PixArt features everybody’s favorite dinosaur in party mode. Inspired by last year’s Toy Story Toon, PartySaurus Rex, this fun and t-shirt-ready image comes to us from the very talented Greg Gosline. The New York-based artist is very talented which you can see from the great designs he has up on his site, including a tribute to the Evil Dr. Pork Chop. Read on for more about Greg in his own words!

Tough question, as there are so many – going to have to go with Mr. Incredible but Evil Dr. Porkchop is a close second.
Tell us about your piece:
I have always been a fan of shorts and really look forward to seeing them as much as I do the actual feature film. But I feel like they don’t get as much love through marketing and merchandise so I wanted to create an alternate poster for the short that has jumped right to the top of my list. I can’t count the number of times I have watched PartySaurus Rex since it was released on iTunes! I love everything about the short, the characters, the soundtrack and the colors! It was just so fun and that’s what I really wanted this piece to be. So I had fun with it, I incorporated my favorite characters from the short and went with some bright colors. It was a blast working on it!
Who/What inspires you?:
My biggest inspiration is my family – I wouldn’t be the artist or person I am without them. Creatively I am inspired by, of course, Walt Disney & John Lasseter, but then also people like Johnny Cupcakes and Shepard Fairey!
