To celebrate the fact that the Toy Story 3 release on Blu-ray and DVD is now one month away, we are launching a brand new PixArt section on The Pixar Times Blog. All month long, we will be counting down to November 2 (the release date for the sets in the U.S. and Canada) by putting up new pieces of Toy Story-related artwork done by established as well as up-and-coming artists from all around the world.
After November 2, the PixArt page will shift gears and become a space where new Pixar-related artwork will be unveiled each month. The new page is a work in progress at this point, but is nonetheless an exciting endeavor for us. We have gained a loyal audience of many readers and are also nearing 2,000 followers on Twitter. Again, I’d like to thank each and every one of you. I sincerely hope you enjoy reading Pixar news and reviews, and now viewing new artwork by artists who love Pixar films as much as I do. Stay tuned for more great things in the future.
Without further ado, I give you our first original PixArt piece from artist Jerrod Maruyama:
Our new PixArt page would not be possible without Jerrod, as he has been spearheading this project for The Pixar Times. That is why I could imagine none other than his artwork as the first piece at launch. You may have noticed our new site logo, which was also lovingly crafted by Jerrod recently. Expect to see more great artwork from him in the future.
