Saturday March 13, 2010 the great PIXAR and Disney story artist would have been 50 years old. Joe was one of the prime creative people behind PIXAR and a major contributor to Toy Story, a Bug's Life, Cars. Joe was tragically killed in an automobile accident 5 years ago. This is a visualization of anecdotes I heard about my friend and colleague Joe.
