Signed Pixar Sketches, Photos and Letters

I am a huge Pixar fan. I think that their movies are great; they have so much heart, character depth and story. Being such a huge fan of Pixar, I sent letters earlier this year to several people who are very involved with Pixar. I have gotten 4 replies so far: Brad Bird, John Lasseter, Bud Luckey, and Ralph Eggleston (I am still waiting and hoping for a reply from Pete Docter and Andrew Stanton). Here are the stunning scans of sketches, letters, and glossy photographs that I have gotten in return for simply sending a letter:

Ralph Eggleston is a Production Designer, Art Director, and a writer for Pixar. He also directed the Pixar short For the Birds. Here is a quick WALL-E sketch and note that he made for me with a marker. This is the best piece of my collection:

Here is a hand-written note and glossy photo from Bud Luckey. Bud Luckey is the director, writer, narrator, production designer, and composer for the Pixar short Boundin'. Luckey has also done production design, art direction, voice work, and animation for various other Pixar features and shorts. He signed this photo, which has him and Brad Bird standing in front of the original storyboard for Boundin'. Awesome:

This is a glossy photograph of Remy and the ghost of Gusteau from Ratatouille. The photo and letter are signed by Brad Bird, who is huge at Pixar, he has directed and written The Incredibles, and Ratatouille. He has also done voices, production, and animation for various other Pixar movies. Very cool:

Last, but certainly not least, here is John Lasseter. This is a glossy photograph depicting the Toy Story 2 toys, signed by John Lasseter. He is the director of Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Toy Story 2, and Cars. He has also produced, directed, written, and animated many Pixar features and short films. One of the most powerful people at Pixar:

Well, there ya go. "Is that your whole collection," you might be asking me. And the answer, is no. I have over 100 pictures, some Disney-related, some Pixar-related, and some related to neither. I will scan and post more pictures about once a month. Keep checking back for the Sherman Brothers, Art Linkletter, Randy Newman, among many other authentically signed pictures, notes, and sketches.

However, i did have the oppurtunity to watch the first 45 minutes of up and pete was there himself to present it

Latiqua, in order to prevent the address from leaking to all corners of the web, causing a flood of letters and thus no replies to any of them, I'd feel more comfortable e-mailing you the information as opposed to posting it for the world to see. If you could just send an e-mail to, I'll be sure to get right back to you.
