Computers don’t make movies. People do: the artists, editors, animators, and technical directors. People are the life behind everything that gets created at Pixar. While animated films are technically complex to make, they each begin with the simplicity of putting pencil to paper.
Many people don’t realize that Pixar has almost as many artists working in traditional media-hand drawing, painting, pastels, sculpture-as they do in digital media. Most of their work takes place during the development of a project, when they are working out the story and the look of the film. The wealth of beautiful art created for each movie is rarely seen outside the studio, and the finished film sent around the world would never be possible without it.

Pixar believes that a film is a contract between the filmmaker and the audience. The filmmaker offers an imagined world; the public interprets the creation. With just the right amount of realism, a film becomes perfectly believable. This belief hinges on the consistent application of the rules of the filmic world. These rules are explored and defined through concept art formats, including character studies, background paintings and color scripts just to name a few. The result is a world both new and recognizable; fictitious yet intuitively real.
The Pixar Art Collection is the first time a coordinated assortment of Pixar concept art has been released, celebrating each milestone film release in Pixar’s history. The pieces were hand-picked by a select team at Pixar and represent a wide range of media, from marker to pastels to digital creation.

The Collection is a love letter to Pixar and to Pixar’s fans – to each of us who found adventure, soared through space, changed our fate and renounced capes forever. To infinity and beyond!

Super Science Fair: A Pop Culture Experiment By Tom Whalen & Dave Perillo To Open At The Spoke Art Gallery On November 3, 2016

14045752_10154281764805428_4320814257700254241_n

Spoke Art Gallery is pleased to present Super Science Fair – A Pop Culture Experiment by Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo. Inspired by sci-fi universes from Godzilla to Willy Wonka, Whalen and Perillo have reimagined pop culture staples in their bright, illustrative vector styles. Each nostalgically modern, limited-edition print puts a playful spin on classic favorites.

Both Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo are heavily influenced by their backgrounds in design and typography as well as a mutual love for all things sci-fi and super hero related. Each artists’ work explores the science behind their favorite films and characters from Aliens to Xenomorphs with concise and dynamic compositions. One part mid-century advertisements, a hand full of cult classics and spiced with pop culture inspirations, Whalen and Perillo have brewed up their version of a science fair. New infographic pieces detailing planets from galaxies far, far, away, Pee Wee’s Breakfast Machine, and a spec sheet for the U.S.S. Sulaco will guide you on this science experiment.

Dave Perillo cites Mary Blair, Walt Disney, Jim Henson and Charles Schultz among his key Super Science Fair influences. For Super Science Perillo has created a series of public service announcements, informational pamphlets and guides. Intergalactic communications, how to grow a dinosaur, and time travel through the ages each seamlessly blends sci-fi heroes with a nod to advertising of the 50’s and 60’s.

Tom Whalen lists comic book artists and illustrators such as Todd McFarlane, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby and Saul Bass as vital inspiration from an early age. Whalen’s latest work spins Reed Richards (Fantastic Four) and Dr. Bowman (2001: A Space Odyssey) as pulp magazine covers. A complete guide to extraordinary beasts details the origin and first sightings for gremlins, wampas and more.

The opening reception will be on Thursday November 3, 2016 from 6-10PM and the exhibit will run until November 26th.
