Pixar's TOY STORY Meets Kubrick's THE SHINING

Pixar's Toy Story has been hilariously mashed-up with Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. The series of art is called Toy Shining, and these were all created by Kyle Lambert on his iPad. Here's a note from the artist expaining why he did it:

Earlier this year I began following Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3) on Twitter (@leeunkrich). As well as his journey to the Oscars with Toy Story 3, Lee often tweets about his passion for Stanley Kubrick and the movie The Shining which inspired him to pursue a career in filmmaking. Having seen both The Shining and Toy Story 3 for the first time recently myself, I thought it would be cool idea to mash the two movies together as a fun side project.

It started off with a few notes on a post-it describing how the two movies could be combined and quickly grew into a 25 panel storyboard. Once I had sketched each composition I set about painting the panels with my iPad using the Brushes app. The project took around 2 months to complete in my spare time from idea to the finished storyboard.

I think these turned out completely awesome. As a fan of both The Shining and Toy Story these images are just so cool to see. I would love to see an animated version of this set to actual audio from The Shining. That would be amazing!
