Toy Story: Pixar Animation Studios Buzz & Woody Tee (Toddler Size)
Here we have an amazingly cute toddler size (2T) Toy Story shirt featuring Kawaii style Buzz and Woody! This was sold exclusively at the Pixar Animation Studios store back in 2011 and was designed by none other than my friend [Disney freelance illustrator] Jerrod Maruyama!
This was a surprise Easter basket gift from my thoughtful wife Brita last week. I had actually never even seen this before, so I was incredibly thrilled when opening it up! I knew right away that it was Jerrod's art (and sure enough it was; his cute, minimal style is unmistakable).
Check it out in more detail below-
Of course this tee is much too small for me (unfortunately, as I would totally wear this), but I look forward to handing this off to one of my future little ones someday (who BETTER love Toy Story ;)
You can learn more about the creation of this design (in an interview that Jerrod partook in back in 2012) HERE. This shirt even caught the attention of Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich who sent Jerrod THIS picture. How cool right? If you're looking to track this down, keep checking eBay (that's where Brita was able to snag it).
