Sorry for the lack of activity lately! I have been editing hundreds of posts these past few months as part of my cleanup effort. While I was sorting through all my art I stumbled on something I made a few years back, but decided not to post: this PIXAR case based on the Pizza Planet truck, which has been seen in every PIXAR film.
The reasons I didn’t post it back then: A.) I was weary of making vehicle-based cases B.) It struck me as something that might not look good on the shelf (it is an ugly old truck), and C.) the design didn’t seem all that user-friendly (see below).
Originally I was striving to make a compact case (this is about 10″ long, 6.75″ tall, 6.25″ wide) that could hold about 20 – 25 discs, and that warranted this telescoping feature. Unfortunately it became this 20-inch long monstrosity that took up a lot of space. Also the discs might be cumbersome to browse and remove (though the trays could probably detach too). I’ve decided to share it now to because of the lack of new posts, and also it is a fun item to behold. This is a reminder for me that some designs just don’t hold up until you see them in action. Here are a few more Pixar designs: Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Wall-E, and a Monsters Inc Blu-Ray player.
