Artist Showcase: Designer & Illustrator Wayne Dorrington

I set about learning the art of Infographics and Data Visualisation last year. Starting simply (with the complete journeys of Doctor Who - which I immediately regretted) I learned a lot and began to try as many different styles as I could. Most recently, I dabbled with use of icons to tell stories recreating the entire plots of the first two Star Wars movies entirely in icons (or "Iconoscope"). I'm now moving towards traditional illustration as well. I am not, however, thinking of shaving my ginger beard in the foreseeable future as its inherent gingeryness is the source of my creative energy.

Toy Story Trilogy Posters, Concept Art and Fan Art

Since the first Toy Story was released in 1995 it has been one of my all time favourite movies; I remember it well because it was also the year I became an older brother, and also where my little sister got her nickname from.

This post shows my never-dying love for the films and characters within it, showcasing a selection of original Toy Story posters, concept art and fan art from all three films.

Over the last few years they have became a far larger brand, now focusing on becoming a fashion line on top of just sport wear, allowing them to involve non-sporting celebrities.
