PixArt: January Feature – Pixar Street

Pixar Street by Mario Graciotti

Often times, a location or structure can be just as much of a character in a Pixar movie as any monster, superhero or bug.  This is particularly evident in our first PixArt feature of 2013. Artist and designer Mario Graciotti (aka Mr-Bluebird on DeviantArt) brings us this beautifully designed tribute to some of the iconic buildings from Pixar films.  Take a close look at each carefully constructed location. Graciotti’s attention to detail is what makes this and all of his other work such a feast for the eyes. Take a closer look at Mario’s artwork and read his story after the break!

Buzz and Woody

It’s amazing how iconic Pixar characters have become in such a relatively short amount of time. I was reminded of this when I first saw today’s PixArt piece. Even with just basic shapes and large swatches of bright colors, one can still quickly recognize Buzz and Woody. These wonderfully abstract portraits come to us from artist Pintachan. Based in Spain, this whimsical and prolific freelance illustrator has churned out some really fantastic images and designs for magazines, t-shirts and more.
