Unseld was recently interviewed by Fast Company in which he gave the back story on how he was inspired to create The Blue Umbrella.
"What was your inspiration for The Blue Umbrella?
It was one of those rare rainy days in California and I was walking through Downtown San Francisco when something in the gutter caught my eye. It was an umbrella that someone must have tossed away, completely beaten up and drenched. And as I was looking at this sad fellow I started wondering what had happened to him and I think that was when I got the idea of telling his story..."
This back-story of how Unseld was inspired, has us even more intrigued on what the "Blue" umbrella's journey may turn out to be. One thing that's for sure is the Fast Company interview is full of insightful details on The Blue Umbrella and is a must-read for any Pixar fan.
