So, I'm going to say it.... Layout & Background is pretty much the best coffee table book ever. Its big, its beautiful, and it barely has any text. The pictures are huge, colorful, and totally inspire me to make art. Perfect, right?
In a new ongoing series of background art, here is are a few detailing the development of a scene in Meet The Robinsons (one of my favorite animated films...). The scene is only a second or two long, but the artist managed to get a laugh in...while winking at Disney parks. As a fan I appreciated the effort immensely.
