I was excited to see this Cars book on the local supermarket shelf the other day (it's one of those 2-in-1 books with a bunch of stickers in the middle). A little over a year ago, I had the pleasure of laying out and penciling the "Off-road Racers" story, which included a new character named El Machismo, a big Dodge monster truck. These stories are based on the new Cars Race-o-Rama video game. David Murray, a background painter for many of Disney's animated films (as well as an excellent screenwriter and novelist), did the digital paints for much of this book. Neither of us knew about each other's work on it until it came up in conversation, while we were working together on "The Princess and the Frog". It's a Small World!
