Rex the dinosaur from the ever-popular Toy Story has been in the spotlight recently, with his starring role in the hilarious short, Partysaurus Rex. The anxious character certainly has a large following of fans who have celebrated him in creative fashion. One example of Rex dedication recently surfaced on Facebook, when Nuno Pereira posted several photos of a cake with the likeness of the lovable character.

Pixar Names Building After Steve Jobs

The Steve Jobs Building

Steve Jobs is often associated with Apple, but many often forgot that the visionary played a large role in the creation of Pixar. He financed the work at the studio long before it became profitable, pouring millions of his own money into keeping Pixar afloat because he believed in the work of the employees. After his death last year, some wondered how the animation studio would honor him. In the end credits of Brave, there was a brief but touching tribute to Jobs. Now, the Jobs name has a more permanent home on Pixar’s campus – above the main entrance to the studio’s main building.

Picture of the Day: Buzz Lightyear Billboard Up In Hollywood

Toy Story 3 Ad In Hollywood

After the five Academy Award nominations were announced for Toy Story 3 this past week, Disney/Pixar is flying high. The studio wasted no time in shouting the film’s recent achievements from the rooftops (literally). On Twitter, director Lee Unkrich tweeted the following photo that was taken in Downtown Hollywood:

The picture serves as a nice reminder to the folks located in the film industry’s backyard. Too bad it probably will not go up in many (any?) other cities. Wouldn’t it be great to walk by the gigantic billboard every day on your way to work or school?

Picture of the Day: Bulgarian Cars 2 Poster

Cars 2 Bulgarian Poster

Living in North America, I don’t always get to see the great international posters that are devised for Pixar films. Today, however, a Cars 2 Bulgarian poster showed up on the Internet Movie Poster Awards Gallery that I had to share. It’s a fun take on the film that instantly tells you there’s going to be a lot of traveling around the world taking place.

Picture of the Day: Snow CARS

Snow CARS

Once in a while, as I scour the depths of the Internet, I come across some great images that display how creative people can be. This morning, I encountered a picture that I’ve dubbed ‘Snow CARS.’ Where was it taken? I’m not even sure when it was taken. If it was recently, given the blizzard that crippled the northeastern United States, it is possible the image was taken there. I’ll leave it up to you to decide:

Cool photo, right? Now that it’s been done, the ability to create characters from CARS using snow seems obvious.

The photo was posted on BuzzFeed by SGTdopushups, where it was linked from the image sharing service, Imgur.
