Blue Bots, Toy Story 3, and Day & Night


I drew these bots last night when watching Avatar the Last Airbender (really looking forward to seeing the movie this weekend!). I'm hoping a story comes to me for the big bot with the red shoulders. Versions of him keep appearing in my sketch book.

Last Weekend Kelsey and I saw Toy Story 3 in 3D. It was better than I thought it would be. While it is far from my favorite Pixar movie, I think it is my favorite of the Toy Story trilogy. Such an emotionally compelling story! Kelsey teared up several times and I certainly did at the end. The Pixar short before Toy Story 3 had been one I was looking forward to seeing. Day and Night was brilliant. The story was genious and the animation was incredible. The mix of 2D and 3D was done in such a way as to be a true tribute to the evolution of animation. I look forward to what Teddy Newton (the director of the short) comes up with next.
