What a treat!

Pixar's "Monsters, Inc. was, as far as I'm concerned, the best animated feature released this year. This art book, published by Chronicle (not Disney -- how odd?), is the only "making of" tie-in created for the film and a delightful visual companion to the movie.

This book is a wonderful collection of preliminary inspirational artwork created for the film. Most of the pieces selected contain characters and concepts that bare no relation to the monsters and mayhem in the final product. But by allowing us to see all the hard (but funny) creative work that goes into the visual decision making, the filmmakers shed some light on the secrets of creating classic animation; they add to our knowledge of the development process and garner our respect for the enormous talent at large within Pixar.

Inspirational art is a vital component of every great animated film--"but average moviegoers never get to see any of it. As John Lasseter and Pete Docter point out in their intro, "Once the film is completed, the inspirational artwork is filed away in the archives, never to be seen by the general public."

What makes this book so enjoyable is the array of talent Pixar assembled for inspiration. The paintings, sketches and layouts, done in pastels, markers, acrylics, gouache, pencils and mixed media presented here, are just plain fun to look at. Many of the artists were given a few details about the settings or the characters, and were then allowed to let their imaginations run free.

The artists themselves are amazing. Some of my favorite pieces are from Lane Smith, J. Otto Siebold and Oscar Grillo. Stealing the show however, are striking works from Geefwee Boedoe, RickyNierva, Lou Romano and Dominique Louis.

Though famed for their landmark work with computer graphics, this book reminds me that Pixar is first and foremost a "cartoon studio"--"the finest in the world, at this point in the 21st Century. Dominique Louis' painting of Sulley's apartment exterior, showing a street filled with sinister looking brownstones, or Harley Jessup's grand concepts for the Monsters Inc. factory, are filled with tiny details that can't be written. The inherent humor of these design defy a literal, verbal description--"and the wit in the color and line cannot be produced in a word processing program. (Yes, even color has wit--"as amply demonstrated in Tia Kratter's color studies of Sullivan's fur and Dominique Louis' color script thumbnails.)

It's joyous to see a variety of professional cartoonists letting loose with a free reign to create creatures that defy logic and all sense of human comprehension.
The secret of Pixar's success (only one of their secrets, I might add) is that they aren't out to use the computer to recreate reality. They know the computer can already do that. They are trying to make authentic, honest-to-goodness, animated cartoons that tell great stories and touch the heart.

Walt Disney accomplished that goal in the 20th Century. Lasseter and his crew are the heir apparent. They understand what makes great, appealing characters and what it takes to bring them to life. This book gives us an over the shoulder peek, with some spectacular artwork that deserves to seen, admired and kept. --""Animation World Magazine

Synopsis

Since the very first bedtime, children around the world have known that once their parents tuck them into bed and shut off the light, monsters lie waiting behind closet doors, ready to emerge. But what they don't realize is that these monsters scare children because they have to. It's their job. Monsters, Inc. is a comedy set in the realm of things that go bump in the night, where chaos breaks loose after a hapless monster accidentally lets a human child into the secret world. In that land of monsters, they hold auditions for each portal that leads to a child's bed. The monsters are on a mission to scare the children, and collect the screams, which are the energy the monsters live off. Two bungling monsters accidentally bring a child back, and are then exiled to our world. John Goodman and Billy Crystal star in this next film from Pixar, the studio that brought you Toy Story, A Bug's Life, and Toy Story 2. The Art of Monsters, Inc. publishes the best of the concept art that was created in the course of the film. A deluxe hardcover featuring the best commercial artists at work today, it will appeal to animators, artists, and movie buffs everywhere.

Dieses Buch ist einfach ein Muß für jeden Animations- und Comic-Art-Fan! Wie nicht anders bei Art of-Books zu erwarten, sieht man hier jede Menge an Kunst, die im Laufe der Produktion zum Kassenschlager MONSTERS, Inc. entstanden ist! Es zeigt eindrucksvoll, daß bei PIXAR die derzeit weltbesten Künstler im Animations-Bereich arbeiten...Man sieht tonnenweise Concept Art, von ersten Figuren-Entwürfen bis hin zu Hintergrund-Gemälden und -Layouts einfach alles, was das Herz begehrt...da wünscht man sich, das Buch wäre dreimal so dick...aber man kann froh sein, daß man heutzutage überhaupt noch so einen Leckerbissen serviert bekommt...also, zuschlagen!

This book is filled with plenty of character design and set drawings. You'll read no making of the movie. There are also no stills from the movie.

The collection of concept art is very colourful, especially the pastel drawings by Dominique Louis and Ralph Eggleston. Every panel drawn by them is a delight to look at.

A definite buy for any Pixar fan or if you're buying for kids.

There are more pictures on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for my blog's link.

HASH(0x969af4c8) von 5 Sternen Awesome visuals but lacking in details 21. Januar 2002
Von Robert Adams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Being a longtime fan of Disney & Pixar films I found myself particularly touched by Monsters, Inc and was eagerly looking forward to learning more about the how this film came about. Previous "Art of" books from Disney and Pixar were rich sources of information on how the story and characters developed from initial inspiration to big screen. As such I was dissapointed to find this book contains primarily concept art. Rich and vivid imagery but very little commentary.

HASH(0x969aaa74) von 5 Sternen Excellent book for any animator. 1. Dezember 2002
Von Edward Juan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
What's surprising is that in this book there is hardly any screenshots or CG graphic art. But that's what makes the book great! It really proves that computer does not dominate in the animation industry; everything is still from sketches and traditional works. The book filled with great works from Eggleton (director of "For the Bird") and many other amazing script illustrators. The only thing that is disappointing is that most of the images are already available in the Monsters Inc. DVD. Overall, no animator should miss this book! Don't want to miss those amazing prints!

Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In recent years everytime a major animated film, particularly those associated with Disney, is released a flood of products overwhelms the consumer market. This is not however your typical 'making of' or 'behind the scenes' look at "Monsters Inc.". I'm certain that if it is not already out there it will soon follow if that is what you're looking for. This book is unique, especially since the movie is 3-D rendered computer animation, because it is not filled with wire-frames, and storyboards, and studio character layouts. This book is more about inspiration. The vast amount of illustrations are beautiful, whimsical, and as varied as the imagination itself. I thouroughly enjoyed this book as a lover of cartoons, of paintings, of drawings, and of monsters of all kinds. I highly reccomend it to children of all ages and art lovers everywhere.

HASH(0x969b9654) von 5 Sternen A wonderful addition to a Pixar classic 4. Dezember 2003
Von T. Metcalf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is full of wonderful, imaginative illustrations that show the time and effort that was placed into Monsters Inc. The numerous different illustrators that have provided work make this collection of images a delight. There is very little text and explanation to go along with the images, but this is exactly what I was looking for. Its interesting to see how many changes the characters appearances went through to reach the final animated film. A definite buy for any fan of Pixar.
