As Pixar nailed the ‘Best Animated Feature Film of the Year’ at the Academy awards for Inside Out, we thought we’d take a look at a collection of their artwork. Lucky for us ‘Pixar: The Design of Story’ is currently on display at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, New York.As someone who loves drawing cartoons, it’s great to follow the processes that the artists go through before they create the final product. I love to see all of the different techniques and variations they went through as well as what could have been. Keep an eye out for Mike Wazowski’s goatee and the sinister Toy Story ‘Woody’ design that makes Chucky look like a Cabbage Patch Doll.
Here’s a (large) selection of the gallery.

The Museum also conducted an interview with John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer, Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios. Here’s their video split into two parts:
If you’re lucky enough to be in New York, you can visit the collection at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum from now until August 7th 2016. If you do go, let us know what it’s like, also we’d love to hear any thoughts you may have on the collection in the comments section below.
