The new Pixar movie is upon us soon and I'm really excited to see it. The best precursor to watching the movie has been reading the Art of Brave written by my good friend Jenny Lerew.
Ill be honest, I never read these books because i'm usually captured by the art and I'm just a slow reader in general so I skim. This book I'm reading and the writing moves so well that I'm captivated by the story that Jenny tells.
I found myself wanting to know the next story point and the next and the next.
All of us in animation have gone through processes like this but Jenny writes it with great tension and humor painting a world that sounds exciting and primordial.
Oh yeah, and one more small little thing. This book is chuck full of amazing paintings, character designs, Storyboards, who'd of thought Storyboards would be celebrated so much? Jenny has really made a book that gives more and more every time I open it! It's a definite must have book!
