Monsters Inc: "We Scare Because..." Art Print by Dave Perillo

Here we have a Monsters Inc. inspired print that's so screamtastic, it's scary! Titled "We Scare Because...", this stunning 14" x 18" art piece by Disney/pop culture illustrator Dave Perillo is currently available at Disney Parks for $39.99. I was thrilled when I stumbled upon it this past October during our latest trip to Walt Disney World! I picked this up at the Merchant of Venus gift shop in Tomorrowland, but I believe it's also available at the Wonderground Gallery in Disney Springs as well.

This deluxe matted print is perfect for framing. I picked up a simple black frame today at Michael's (40% off) and popped it right in. It's currently hanging proudly on my office wall as the newest addition to my Pixar art gallery! This same image is also available as a 5" x 7" postcard as well, for those wanting this in a smaller size. Retail for the postcard is $4.99.

All your fave characters are here: Mike, Sulley, Boo, Celia, Roz, Waternoose, Randall, George Sanderson, Fungus and even Needleman and Smitty (man, those two just don't get enough love; it's awesome Dave included them on here). I just love everything about this. It's great for adult fans like myself, but this would also look adorable in a Monsters Inc. kid's room!

Dave Perillo has been a favorite of mine for years (check out when we first met HERE). I'm just completely drawn to his style, which is very specific to him. I can recognize one of Dave's pieces from a mile away. I love his minimal character designs and use of muted/unique color schemes—and I gotta say, it works SO well here with this piece. I  really wish I had more of Dave's art, but I've only been able to get my hands on a couple other prints (like the NYCC Wall·E & Eve ones and the issue of Birth.Movies.Death he did the cover art for). As seen below, in 2018 he even did some designs based on several Pixar short films! I REALLY need those. Like a lot.

You can check out Dave's portfolio (as well as all the upcoming conventions he'll be attending) on his blog Montygog. If you like what you see, be sure to hit him up on Instagram and Twitter as well.

That's about it! I'd love to hear your thoughts, so be sure to comment down below. Do you have any Dave Perillo pieces you're proud to have? Who's your favorite Disney artist?
