These paintings were done by John Watkiss. He’s an amazing artist (http://johnwatkiss.blogspot.com/).  I remember my wife and I went to his home when he was working on “World of Tomorrow”.  The art was amazing.  He makes it look so easy!  I remember that was the day (probably spring 2002) when I first heard of “chem clouds”.  He pointed out the peculiar clouds being formed by jet contrails.  I’ve been looking up since that day and observed a lot of strange patterns in the sky caused by contrails.  There’s a whole conspiracy on that subject with lots of evidence and speculation.  Anyway, I don’t think he gets the amount of credit he deserves on many of his films.

Some nice development art from Pixar’s UP!  I love to see stuff like this that shows the stages of development.  It’s some of that secondary art that makes Pixar movies so enjoyable-the stuff you press pause to look at.  -Waveybrain
