More morning art: UP retro posters — UPDATE

This is not comics, too, but we’re all big Pixar fans here, right??? Plus one detects perhaps a bit of influence from some of our favorite Pixar-based cartoonists here, as well.

UPDATE: Artist Paul Conrad writes to give credits —

Eric Tan did the “Journey into the Wild” (with the dogs).

Craig Foster did the SAA South American Air (with the Lama).

Erik Evans did the “Paradise Falls” (with the bird).

I did the rest.


There’s more on the posters at Conrad’s blog.

Also, we’re trying to find out if they are for sale, but apparently they were just sent out as files to websites as promo. If we find out any more, we’ll let ya know!

Anyway to celebrate the release of UP on DVD and Blu-Ray, Pixar has released a series of retro posters. Click for larger images.

    What Len said! Where can we get these? Or are they just online?

    Please PLEASE PUH-LEASE!!!! Somebody make a calendar! My current wall calendar is the “National Parks: Poster Art of the WPA”, and these Pixar posters would look so nice on an oversized monthly calendar!

    These are just beautiful.

    I agree with Torsten (and we have the same calendar). These would make a marvelous poster calendar. The kind I would leave up when the year was over!

    Having sold calendars in a mall for the last two months, I can say with confidence that there is an UP calendar, published I think by Day Dream. It uses the dogs image from the “Journey Into the Wild” poster here, but I don’t think it uses any of these other images, unless as backgrounds.

    If you’re a die-hard UP fan, it’s worth checking out, although the calendar is actually kind of lousy–recycled character images (done in this same flat style, of course) in front of various backgrounds. One may find the “Disney/Pixar Art of Animation” calendar (also published by Day Dream) to be of more interest. It’s got concept art from nearly all the films…

    MeadWestvaco is the parent company. They also manufacture the Marvel calendars.

    Pixar has published/licensed wall calendars for each of their feature films. Search BN.com, where many older calendars are sold via the Used & Out of Print section. eBay is also a good source. And if you’re looking for a retro calendar for 2010… 1971, 1982, 1993, 1999 are the same year, dominical letter C.
