Al's Toy Barn by Mr-Bluebird Al's Toy Barn by Mr-Bluebird
Sixth entry to the series, Al's Toy Barn from Toy Story 2.

I think this is the one I've watched the most.. probably along with the Incredibles. They're the ones I have most fun watching.

I really didn't have a solid plan with this one. I had a lot of different themes in my head, but didn't know which ones to use or how to put them together.
From all of this series so far, this is probably the one that has less visual resemblence with what's in the movie.. it can be a good thing and a bad thing.. depends on your point of view.
I'm quite happy with the result though... I think it came out visually interesting... and I got to use some colors I never use =)

This poster image of Al's Toy Barn also looks very nice, and "Toy Story 2" would probably have to be my most favorite movie in the trilogy as well. :D

Al is a greedy toy collector and I remembered he kidnapped Woody and he brought him to the apartment. He was going to sell Woody and his gang to Konishi Toy Museum in Tokyo, Japan to make him rich but when he arrived in Japan and he realised that all the toys were just vanished.

In the ending, he was sobbing because his toy store has the lowest prices in town after his trip to Japan went completely pear-shaped. He and his business went bankrupt.

Hey Blue- I would love prints of the series (poster size) are they available for purchase? If not, how can I convince you to do a one-off run for me?

Awesome! For some reason, upon first glance, I thought it looked like a Chinese menu, lol, but now I see the letters are formed out of fences, which is cool. :]

Nice use of color. Original idea executed to make it feel like you see it every day.

Good job!

I'm saying that if it was a real toy store, this would look like a flyer someone tacked onto a community corkboard.

I would probably visit Al's Toy Barn if it existed. Like the commercial says "Everything for a buck-buck-buck and that's cheap-cheap-cheap!"

I like this design choice for Al's Toy Barn. Its different, but still fits with the whole farm theme that the store has in universe. Also, this sign since like it would fit in well at Frontierland in Disney World lol.

Mr-Bluebird Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011  Student
lol you're right! it would fit pretty good in Frontierland

I'm not so sure with how well it connects with the movie, so it's good to hear you say that =) thanks!

I like it, but I don't think it's the best piece so far? XD

Also, that might just be me, but this one looks so much like a country restaurant instead of a toy store? :'D

Absolutely. It has NO visual resemblance to the movie.
But I got so happy with how it was turning out, despite what it *should* look, that eventually I put the movie aside and just went with it.

Holy crap this is awesome. All of your Pixar Establishment posters are amazing. Wish they were available for purchase whether in digital form or in prints. I'd love to hang these suckers up in my room. :)
