The Art of Pixar – Amid Amidi – 320 pages
Eye candy aplenty. As its says on the cover you get to see “the complete colour scripts and select art from 25 years of animation” at Pixar. Rendering styles include, acrylic, gouache, markers, pastels, pencil and digital. Looking through you can quickly see how they are so important to guiding the production team on the emotional development of the script through color and lighting. Favourites for me include the pared down graphic style of Lou Romano and the digital work of Dice Tsutsumi.
