Incredibles 5th Anniversary pin

This is one of the very last pins I designed for the Disney Design Group last year, about this time. I've always enjoyed interpreting the Pixar characters into 2D drawings - it's like re-imagining the films as if they were traditionally animated. The interesting thing about Pixar merchandise is that there are three levels of stylization: 3D computer-generated renderings from the studio, highly-detailed and accurate drawings used for creating sculptures or big figs, and simplified art like this pin. Most of my Pixar experience is from the opportunities I've had to work on children's book illustration, and I'll always be grateful for that.
