To be released in November, Wreck-It-Ralph is a Disney animated motion picture focusing on Ralph, who plays the wrecking bad guy in an 8-bit arcade game but grows tired of his role and escapes the game to become a good guy. Michael Doret created the title logo, a wonderful homage to 8-bit graphics. Michael shares his process and sketches at the “more” link.

You have to see the “more” link to get the full scope. [More]
