Listen to Steve Purcell at the Cartoon Art Museum

The kind folks at the Cartoon Art Museum have provided us with the audio of Steve Purcell talking through his artwork at his Sam & Max exhibit.

The exhibit ran for many months in the San Francisco gallery and ended back in April. On the 1st of February, Steve gave a talk to those in attendance, offering stories behind the artwork and the process that went into them — at one point he even sings!

With special thanks to Mischa McLachlan at the CAM, the one hour audio goodness is available below for you to listen to. Sadly there are no visuals, but if you open up our gallery of the exhibit you might be able to figure out which artwork Steve is talking about.

Steve Purcell directing new Toy Story short film

Okay, so while this isn’t strictly Sam & Max news, it can’t help to expand the news reporting a bit…

It has been announced today that Pixar are producing another Toy Story short film called Toy Story That Time Forgot. The special will air on ABC in America.

The Sam & Max link? The short will be directed by none other than Steve Purcell! Having previously co-directed Brave, it’ll be great to see how Steve tackles this.

Here’s the official synopsis:

quotelongDuring a post-Christmas play date, the ‘Toy Story’ gang find themselves in uncharted territory when the coolest set of action figures ever turn out to be dangerously delusional. It’s all up to Trixie, the triceratops, if the gang hopes to return to Bonnie’s room.

All of the original voice cast are set to return, plus a new role from Kevin McKidd (who was Lord MacGuffin in Brave).

A release date is currently unknown, but we’ll report on it when announced.
