Create a t-shirt design inspired by Disney•Pixar's Monsters, Inc.
James P. Sullivan may look like a fuzzy oversized teddy bear, but when he’s on the job he’s not so cuddly. Sulley and his Monsters, Inc. coworkers are in the business of giving tykes a good fright—making adorable kiddos go “eek!” powers the city of Monstropolis. But what scares the scarers? Boo, the cutest little two-year-old you ever did see, who accidentally hops a ride with Sulley into Monstropolis and gives all of the monsters a spook.
Your challenge is to design a t-shirt inspired by the scarers and scarees of Monsters, Inc.
So take cues from furry-faced Sulley, Mike Wazowski’s one googly eye, or cute as a button toddler Boo to create a t-shirt that will be the talk of Monstropolis.

The fourth feature-length animated film from the innovative minds at Pixar, Monsters, Inc. first hit theaters in 2001, winning fans with its offbeat humor and the studio’s most realistically animated character yet, professional scarer James P. Sullivan, who rules the Scarefloor with his one-eyed best bud, Mike Wazowski. Catch the pals in Monsters, Inc. 3D in theaters now, then take a master class in Terror Theory 101 as Mike and Sulley go back to school in the prequel Monsters University next June.
