This incredible piece comes to us from Australian artist Chris Kennett. We’re big fans of Chris’ work and we’re sure you will be too after seeing this great piece. The Parrs are spending a relaxing night at home in front of the TV and are surrounded by some references to other Pixar films.

We were thrilled when artist Andrew Kolb agreed to do a piece for us. But we were not expecting this! Wow! With many references to Pixar’s films and shorts, make sure to take your time to try to find them all. This wonderfully clever piece is practically poster-ready. You’ll definitely want to check out more of Andrew’s great work. We’ll let Andrew tell you more about his work and where you can find it.
What is it about Monsters, Inc. that so inspires our PixArt artists? Perhaps it is the film’s creativity because the film has definitely been a popular choice on our PixArt page and we continue to be impressed by the artwork we have received! When the art is this good, who’s complaining? Check out this wonderfully stylized take on our favorite citizens of Monstropolis provided by San Francisco artist Grant Gilliland. We love the Clasky Csupo vibe! Check out more about the artist in his own words.
Joe Ranft was talented enough when it came to storyboarding, but his skill did not stop there. He also crafted voices for some of Pixar’s most memorable characters – Wheezy in Toy Story 2, Jacques in Finding Nemo, and of course Heimlich in A Bug’s Life. As Heimlich, Ranft raised character humor to a whole new level of hilarity.
“Slow down you flowers! Oh, CANDY CORN! Here, let me help you to finish it!” is a Heimlich line that still has us laughing hysterically over 10 years later.
Today’s tribute to the late, great Joe Ranft continues with this wonderful Heimlich piece from San Diego Artist Andy Wilhite. We’re big fans of Andy’s beautifully designed characters and t-shirt designs. His use of color and negative space is a constant inspiration. Check out his flickr account for more great images. You can also find him on Threadless where many of his awesome designs are for sale. Thanks to Andy for contributing this adorable piece to our celebration of Ranft’s birthday!
We are thrilled with this outrageously original piece from Malaysian artist tanglong. Based on his favorite Pixar movie, the artist says this is the “Down” version of Up. You can check out more of his great work at his deviantART page. He’s got some great takes on classic characters and personalities. Lots of fun designs that are worth a look. We hope to see more from this fun artist. Read on for more about him in his own words.

As today is the 25th Anniversary of Pixar Animation Studios, we wanted to run a special edition of PixArt to celebrate. Now, we are absolutely thrilled to present a piece by Chris Chua, an animator at Pixar. Since he joined the storied studio a few years ago, Chris has worked on films WALL-E and Up. Last week, we got a look at a turntable video for Cars 2 character, Carla Veloso, which Chris animated.
We asked Chris a few questions about his evolution into an animator, his time at Pixar, and his influences. Read on to go on a journey through the mind of a great Pixar animator!
