Shelf No 2

much bigger number o them this time. Each next shelf has more and more books, as they get thinner, and I could fit more into a single shelf.
Amongst these books there's a lot of favorites.
Actually I like every one of them.
They are all done by great artists, each in his own right.

Funny facts silly questions:
On the first image there's 3 books I owned for 20 years, and they traveled with me half way across the world. Can you spot them?
Still on the first image, easy question- one of the books contains the works of Akira Torayama, one of very few favourite japanese artists of mine.
On image3 (second from the top in this post) there's a comic called "Anton's collected Drek", a collection of pornographic stories drawn by an artist named Anton Drek... well his real name is Don Simpson, and he is creator of my favorite super hero- Megaton-man.
Also, on image 3 (although only one person other than me can answer it) there's two books which do not belong to me.
I kind of borrowed them a year ago, and forgot to give them back :)
Guess which ones, Mr Lachlan :)

You have some cool books... except for maybe the ART OF ANASTASIA book. That might be the worst "Art of" book ever published for an animated film. I worked on that movie and there was some fantastic art that could have been in there instead, they decide that they should blow tiny colour keys up into double page spreads. Of course, some of the work I'm thinking they could have put in like, Tom Steisenger's designs were better than the final film. Maybe that's why they did what they did...

In any case, look forward to seeing more books.

Cheers for comments dude.
What were you doing working there?
Concepting or animating (or something else?)
It's not the best of books, but I have seen worse :)
Funny thing is that I have never seen the movie. Not too big on Russian princesses.
"The art of.." book was given to me as a gift (everyone in the family knows I like books, so they bring me some for my birthday and such- but they are usually crap ones. I did get a few good ones people picked up on yard sales for cheap by accident) At the time I got it, I think it was one of the first art of books I got, next 2 were the art of star wars. I was first blown away with them, then I saw the movies, then I checked the books again...Nowdays, I find them more sterile every time I look at them.
For Anastasia,it was technically perfect but very traditionally designed, not very design innovative. Still solid and nice.

Anyhow, thanks for stopping by mate :)

Thanks guys.
LFW, it's cool, but just one at the time.

Cheers for visiting.

The 20 yrs old books must be Janjetov and two Kordeys. :)

And I know what you mean by the gifts from people who give you just any books and say "I heard that you read".
