Pattern: Pixar's Day & Night

I've practically gown up watching Pixar movies. They started making them around the time I was born. I LOVE them. We have a eight member family so going to the movies for 7 bucks a kid isn't exactly cheap. But every year during the summer we always go and see the new Pixar movie. It's kinda like a tradition. Anyway, anyone who likes Pixar movies knows that one of the best parts is the short film at the beginning. So today I've recreated two of the character from one of my favorites. Day & Night.
If you haven't seen it, watch it!
