  • How do Pixar artists and animators overcome art blocks?
    — Mehrshada
    In our discussions we've had with Pixar employees, there really isn't a way to avoid art blocks (much like writers block). The key is to keep focus. You may have times you have to walk away - there may be a time you have to explore a new area of art to crack open your field again. Keep pushing and creating.
