One of the nicest people I met on my trip to San Francisco, Enrico Casarosa is a story artist at Pixar and a damn good one at that. On one of his last trip to Europe he put together a book, well more so I would say a visual journal of his time there.
I suggest buying this book. I had time to read it on my flight back to Seattle, and after i was finished it really inspired me to get cracking and make one of my own. Each page is visually spectacular full of water color and excitement. Once again I really suggest picking it up and taking a look at the wonderment of Enrico’s imagination.
I love this movie!!! I found this book at a used book store two days ago and haven’t been able to put it down since. The art is amazing, and just learning about there amazing process is well, AMAZING!
A lot of people (including me) have gave this movie a bunch a crap because the story was so far off from the actual tale of Hercules, but as I have learned especially after working at Disney there is just something you can’t show! haha I look at it i would rather have this movie here the way it is now then to not have one at all, and pretty much that is the options you would’ve had!
I’m sure this isn’t the easiest of books to find, but if you ever get a chance just to look at it. I recommend you picking it up. If nothing else I believe the pages would wow you something at least to crack a smile, and to you artists out there I believe it will inspire you to take out your pencil, and make your own legend!
This is a great book, and now one of the finest in my growing collection!
