Toy Story + The Shining = a beautiful mashup made in hell

Pixar's Toy Story has always been excellent grist for the mashup mill—the Toy Story 3/Inception trailer job is a favorite—but none of them have been quite as wonderfully sinister as this, which reminds us that all work and no play makes Woody a dull boy.

Digital artist Kyle Lambert explained his inspiration for Toy Shining:

"Earlier this year I began following Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3, on Twitter (@leeunkrich). As well as his journey to the Oscars with Toy Story 3, Lee often tweets about his passion for Stanley Kubrick and the movie The Shining which inspired him to pursue a career in filmmaking. Having seen both The Shining and Toy Story 3 for the first time recently myself, I thought it would be cool idea to mash the two movies together as a fun side project.

"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."
