I've never worked on anything that released a book on "The Art and Making of" before. This is so cool! Finally, I can add this to my collection! There is no doubt that Genndy Tartakovsky is an animation genius and the character designs for this film are beautifully captured in this book. Hotel Transylvania was originally supposed to be one of Sony Pictures Imageworks' first fully-animated films. It went through a number of directors and story re-writes for nearly a decade. It's cool to see some of the early character designs of Dracula and how different they are from what ended up in the film. Very inspiring! Also, you get a real sense of some of the crazy poses we were challenged to animate for the film. You can order The Art and Making of Hotel Transylvania at Amazon.com HERE.
