The Art of Pixar's Newt - Chronicle Books Please Make This!!!

This book doesn't actually exist but I really want it too. I collect all the "Art of" Pixar books from Chronicle Books and I'd love to add this to my Collection so I designed a cover in the hopes it would generate some buzz. I love concept art, it is so inspiring and these Pixar artists take it to a new level...gorgeous stuff!

Now, this film Newt was cancelled unfortunately because apparently it had a plot too similar to the film "Rio". But judging by the concept art this movie would have been light years better. To make things worse all this artwork is just sitting unorganized on the internet in various low resolutions...such a shame. It needs an official release, plus I'm sure there's lots more where this stuff came from.

So come on Chronicle Books and Pixar. Make this thing already, you know any Pixar fan would love to have a published record of this film which really should have been made. I was looking forward to this more than any other Pixar film announced at the time. No Doubt this would have been better than "Brave" or "Cars 2".

Pixar...resurrect this film and shelve Toy Story 4. It's too much, that story ended perfectly with part 3. More original ideas and less sequels please.

The End.

Weekly Monster Menagerie

Here's a fun experiment where I challenged myself to create a new monster every week for 10 weeks. This was an project to further develop my sharp, geometric vector art and minimal design composition skills. Also things like this keep my brain moving creatively, especially when I stretch the limits of my imagination. Here's a few highlights from this series:

Friendly Fires Poster!

Here's the finished Friendly Fires gig poster! The Theme: You can still be friendly even with your head on fire. The friendly fires are a great band with a fun sound so I thought I would do something dark and comedic. Well, time to send this to one of the band members!

Sports Logo Design

Here's a logo I just did for a local media company that centers on sports and music. They wanted the logo to look like a sports team logo, since they mostly cater to sports fans on the radio and web.

Sea Prints: Coming Soon!

Here's a personal project I've been working on inspired by my love of the Sea and all things in it. I am going to be making prints of all of these in limited numbers of 100 each. When I get to 12 different sea creatures I am going to try to combine them into a poster book in which you can pull out the pages and frame them up! Here's the first 3....
