The private artworks of 49 Dreamwork animators have been drawn together into a book – at a reasonable price, considering it’s glossy and with colour pictures throughout. There’s a Flip through view by Parka (an Amazon reviewer) below. His review is at the bottom of this screen over at Amazon.
You can find a longer blog post on this book, together with a video of interviews with some of its artists, at a blog post earlier today.
There are 49 artists featured in the book – as you can see, the styles vary hugely – this would be a wonderful inspiration book for art education departments and students.
The artists featured are awardwinners at the Annie Awards – annual animation awards – the 2017 list of nominees has just been announced (awards ceremony in February).
If you’re interested in breaking into the animation world (or know someone who is), well worth bookmarking the Annie awards and trying to catch the winners on DVD. Excellence inspires excellence.
Or, just to keep up to date on good films, from general interest – keep an eye on Annie Awardwinners and try to see the films which attract your attention.
Creative prompt: pause the video showthrough of the book at a random page, and use a picture on it as a jumping off point for your own creative making.
