Toy Story Concept Art by Ralph Eggleston (From "The Art of Pixar: 100 Collectible Postcards" Set)

Toy Story Concept Art by Ralph Eggleston

Similarly to what I did a few weeks ago, tonight I just wanted to quickly share some more of my personal favorite art found in the "The Art of Pixar: 100 Collectible Postcards" Volume 1 boxed set—this time Toy Story! While these aren't new items of mine, I've never highlighted these specific postcards individually before. I was looking through the sets recently, as I do every now and then, and was reminded of this absolutely amazing concept art by the studio's own [the legendary] Ralph Eggleston (art director for Toy Story)! The art, featuring Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Hamm, Bo Peep, Slinky, Lenny, Rex and Mr. Potato Head, was just too amazing not to share with you all.

So were these concept designs for Andy's drawings, the ones on the wall in his bedroom? I'm not exactly sure what they were originally made/intended for, but that's my best guess since it fits that crayon-drawn style. The size of each postcard is unique (about 5 3/4" x 4"), so it's kind of hard to find little frames that size. I've always wanted to frame these for my desk, but it just hasn't happened yet. I really wish they were also available as larger prints so I could hang it on my office wall!

Anyway, that's everything for tonight. Just something short and sweet. If you're interested in adding either of the "Art of Pixar" postcard boxed sets to your collection (they're a great price by the way; total must-haves), you can make your purchase using the Amazon affiliate links below. Let me know your thoughts down in the comments!
