When illustrator Kyle Lambert began following Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich on Twitter, he discovered that Unkrich has a thing for Stanley Kubrick flicks, most notably The Shining. So what did Lambert do? Oh, he just spent the free time of the next two months of his life creating Toy Story/The Shining mashup paintings using an iPad, a project he calls “Toy Shining.”
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.
