Toy Story: Pixar Animation Studios Buzz & Woody Tee (Adult Size)

Early last month, I posted about an adorable Toy Story Buzz and Woody Kawaii style toddler size shirt that was available only at the Pixar Studio Store back in 2011. If you missed it, you can check it out HERE.

In that post I mentioned how I would totally wear it myself if an adult size was made. Well, it turns out the same design was in fact also available on adult size tees at the time of release! The incredibly talented and generous artist who created this design, Jerrod Maruyama (most known for his "Hipster Mickey" in the Disney Parks), actually reached out to me and was able to help me out in getting this recently (even though these shirts aren't technically available anymore). That was so kind and thoughtful... I really can't thank him enough for this! I absolutely love it.

Overall, the shirt fits great, the material is nice and soft and the characters look as cute as can be. Coolest of all, I'll be able to match with my future little guy someday!

You can find out 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 (I didn't see one up there currently, but it very well could show up anytime).

Learn much more about Jerrod Maruyama and his stunning art on his blog HERE. He's one of my all time favorites! You can also follow him on Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Flickr, Dribbble and Twitter.
