Disney, 2011 (2011)
Reviewed by Bob Walch
here is virtually no text in this oversized volume, but the full page illustrations speak volumes. From the simplest Disney ink washes and the lush paintings for past classic films to the computer renderings of more recent films, this collection of art highlights the amazing talent and range of the layout artists who have worked at the Walt Disney Animation Studios.
ver twenty of these talented individuals' work is showcased on these pages. The artwork, much of which has never been published before, provides a chance to see the work that influenced such Disney classics as
The Lion King
ranted, this is a rather expensive book, but once you begin paging through it, it becomes very apparent that this was a costly book to produce and this one-of-a-kind art work is not going to be readily available except in this volume. Therefore, it really is a bargain and worth the price!
