6 Spectacular Pixar-Inspired Art Mashups

One of the things I appreciate about fan art is seeing how people take a popular idea, character or universe and completely reimagine it. As I was browsing the web for inspiration this week, I was delighted to see so many Pixar enthusiasts do this so well. Here are just 6 Pixar-inspired pop cultural mashups that are worth talking about.

Let These Pixar Sand Sculptures Inspire You

Last month, my friend Kyle posted a link to my Facebook Timeline that directed me to a collection of Pixar-themed sand sculptures. My jaw dropped when I saw the images of these wonderfully crafted masterpieces.     

So, I decided to share them here for your viewing pleasure. Perhaps they will help you nourish your own creativity.
