Hey all, so in honour of Del Toro's new film, Crimson Peak, coming out I decided to do an infographic about the man who has always inspired me.
I love to create and draw new creatures and monster. Something about them reminds me of me, of us all actually, because like monsters we are flawed, imperfect. Every scar, bruise, deformity, personality flaw, they all make us who we are. So by extension, I feel I am personifying my flaws and imperfections when I draw these creatures. When I see the creatures Del Toro creates and brings to life it reminds me of this sentiment. While his creatures are flawed they are perfect and beautiful in their own way. The forms of his creature designs tell a story of their own, what they are, where they are from, and what they have been through. He never ceases to amaze me, especially in the way he tells his stories.
I may not be drawing creatures as much these days but what I learned from making them I adapted into what I do now. It may not be creating monsters but it is still creative. Del Toro still teaches me about pushing boundaries (new design styles) and surpassing limitations (time, budgets, resources).
Cheers, to the man who continues to inspire and drive my creativity.
