Ratatouille Postcard (Artwork by Joey Chou)

Bon appétit! From one of my favorite artists, the brilliantly talented Joey Chou, comes this Disney·Pixar Ratatouille inspired print titled, well, "Ratatouille"! This gorgeous artwork was released this past January/February at the 2021 Epcot International Festival of the Arts and follows Chou's previous eight Pixar creations which include: The Good Dinosaur (see HERE & HERE), Finding Dory, Up, Cars, The Incredibles, Coco and Monsters Inc. I would absolutely love to see every Pixar film in Chou's portfolio someday. He's well on his way at this point!

This is, per usual, the standard 4x5 postcard size I always collect (the best value for this art, retailing at only $5.99—also great if you don't have much wall space), but it's also available as a Deluxe size 14x18 matted print and a 18x24 Canvas Wrap.

I'll be reiterating what I said in my previous post since it honestly all applies here. Chou's style is incredibly adorable and instantly identifiable once you know it. It's a unique balance of minimal designs, bright/soft colors and simple shapes/sharp lines. I couldn't even begin to pick a favorite piece he's done, but this one is up there now for sure; especially given Ratatouille is one of my all-time favorite Pixar films! I know I basically say that every time, but he just keeps topping himself. Just WOW. It's all perfection—vibrant, masterfully composed and cute as can be. It really captures the magic, heart and charm of the film with a touch of whimsy.
At this point, this can most likely still be found at the Disney Springs (or Downtown Disney in CA) Wondeground Gallery shop. If you're interested in this for your collection but can't make it there, your best bet tracking it down would be checking out current eBay listings HERE (that's what I had to do—I ended up paying around $15 for it).
Note: I also wanted to mention that there are two Pixar limited edition Joey Chou prints (seen below) that I don't have as they were not released at Disney and were never available in this convenient postcard size—a Wall·E one and an Inside Out one. Both are absolutely brilliant and I really hope to add them to my collection one day! 

I can't wait to see what else Chou creates throughout the year. What film would you love to see him tackle next?  Whatever it might be, consider it purchased. Find out more about Joey Chou and his art on his Tumblr, blog, and Facebook page. If you like what you see, give him a follow on Instagram and Twitter as well! He's an awesome guy.
