The Good Dinosaur Likes the Grand Tetons...

...and so do I! A photo of the Tetons is part of my logo above, and I've climbed there many times. A beautiful place, and Pixar knows it. They built a world for The Good Dinosaur using USGS topographical data for the Teton area and then rendered it digitally. The result is rather magical, not unlike the famous turn of the century paintings of Thomas Moran. Click the images below to learn more about both artists!
