Christopher Nielsen for Pixar

Phosphor's Christopher Nielsen was commissioned to create some images for Pixar’s Instagram feed with characters from The Incredibles, Monsters Inc., Wall-E, Up, Coco and Finding Nemo having fun in the sun with the theme “Any weather is better with you”.

Chris enjoyed the challenge of illustrating existing (and rather famous!) characters, as opposed to designing characters for picture books himself, as he is more used to doing.
