Toy Story meets The Shining

This is too cool. If you’ve ever wondered what The Shining would look like with the characters from Toy Story, wonder no more.

Well, you probably never even gave it a second thought, but artist Kyle Lambert brought this mash-up to life in these really cool paintings.

Lambert’s inspiration came from Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, who tweeted about his love of The Shining and director Stanley Kubrick.

Lambert challenged himself to create a mash up of The Shining and Toy Story 3 in a series of iPad paintings, using characters from the Pixar animated film that he placed in some of the horror movie’s well-known scenes.

Lambert explains on his website: “It started off with a few notes on a post-it describing how the two movies could be combined and quickly grew into a 25 panel storyboard. Once I had sketched each composition, I set about painting the panels with my iPad using the Brushes app. The project took around 2 months to complete in my spare time from idea to the finished storyboard.”

He actually delivered a printed version of his Toy Shining project and Lee Unkrich loved it!

Check out some of the artist’s paintings below and sound off is it creepy and disturbing to see Woody and the gang in The Shining scenes?
