Peter Chan appreciation


Recommended Posts

Today I watched and enjoyed Pixar's Onward, and in the credits I spotted Peter Chan.

He's uploaded oodles of his typically wonderful concept art (possibly more than you might find in the Art Of... book) to his portfolio site, here. Some spoilery stuff, although a lot of the images are fascinating roads not taken by the film – clearly from early on in the story development. Here are three of my favourite drawings:





His art just has this wonderful energy that's still exciting me almost 30 years after I first encountered it.

It turns out he also worked on Monsters University, which was news to me. I knew about Steve Purcell's work on Brave and a few other things.

Whilst I'm here I might as well post the best episode of the DFA documentary, including the inspiring visit to Peter's home on San Juan Island:
