Magic in the details
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.
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.

About the Artist: Bill Cone
Bill Cone joined Pixar Animation Studios in 1992 as a freelancer. Cone was asked by John Lasseter to develop studies of neighborhoods for an animated Christmas television special for Disney, about toys that came to life. The TV special eventually became the groundbreaking animated feature film Toy Story, leading to a full-time position for Cone, as a set designer on the project. For Pixar’s next two films, A Bug’s Life and Toy Story 2, Cone served as production designer and co-production designer, respectively. For the Golden Globe®-nominated Cars, Cone split the production designer credit with Bob Pauley, and was responsible for the overall look of the film’s various environments, color design and sets. Cone also contributed his talents to the Academy Award®-winning Up. In addition to his work on Pixar’s feature films, Cone has worked on a number of short films, including the Cars Toons ”Air Mater” and ”Time Travel Mater,” and he shared production designer credit with Robert Kondo for the Oscar®-nominated ”La Luna.” Cone also worked on the color for the exterior landscapes of Disney’s California Adventure’s ”Cars Land,” which opened on June 15, 2012.
