It's Not Me, It's Chris Sasaki

Recently, I got a bunch of mails and comments concerning a character with orange beak and horns in Pixar's Monsters University and if I probably was the designer of this very character. Unfortunately, I was not, it was the supernaturally gifted Chris Sasaki.
This here below is BTW a rough design of mine which I created a couple of years ago in connection with some development work for Red Bull. I did lots of such "peckers with horns" characters that time, they can easily mistaken for the character from Monsters, I guess.
