The fourth is a page from his work on Hell­boy, and the fifth is art for his most recent film, Pacif­ic Rim.His darkly detailed monsters, fairy tale creatures and super heroes are some of the most stunning characters of contemporary film; figments of his own imagination that take shape in a very un-Hollywood process. Here is a fantastic collection of Guillermo del Toro's gorgeous concept art that he draws in his sketchbook. del Toro is an eccentric director of sporadic brilliance — Cronos and The Devil's Backbone are brilliant, but he managed to mangle Mike Mignola's Hellboy into a travesty — but I am extremely charmed by the haltering Mexican lilt of his describing of his wonderful sketchbook. Or, the illustration of his journals, though the collected ideas or the sketchbooks of McKean’s work would likely be extraordinary.

He has a rich and well, creepy vision that he carefully constructs starting with detailed sketchbooks. I am very much looking forward to Guillermo del Toro’s dark adult fairy tale, Pan’s Labyrinth; I also deeply love looking at people’s journals and sketchbooks.Similar in design to del Toros leather-bound volumes, this sketchbook features an inspirational message from the director along with selected examples of his incredible art. There too, in the Barker’s journaling notations, creative conceptions culminate in production, storytelling and stretching the realizations of the visioning.

Ever since Cronos gave me nightmares as a nine-year-old I’ve been a tentative and latterly whole-hearted fan of Guillermo del Toro’s films, so to have the opportunity to sneak a peek into his haunted mind via the busy pages of his sketchbooks is an absolute treat.

As he explains in the video above, the 256-page hard­cov­er is a selec­tion from his note­books, where the direc­tor devel­oped many of the mon­strosi­ties we’ve seen on screen. Originally theological (opposed to matters of belief), sense of “items of business to be done at a meeting” first attested 1882.

I am very much looking forward to Guillermo del Toro's dark adult fairy tale, Pan's Labyrinth; I also deeply love looking at people's journals and sketchbooks. I’ve written and spoken publicly in the past about the concept of the journal — the annotated sketchbook — as a place of making ideas.For those inter­est­ed in view­ing more of del Toro’s won­der­ful­ly bizarre sketch­es, a some­what larg­er gallery is avail­able here. In Del Toro’s case, that movie is a never-ending box set of monsters, contraptions and beautiful, dark, twisted fantasies.
