Just one chance. In the animation, these detailed key animation cuts from Attack on Titan episode 8 were panned over and flashed by in the blink of an eye. Sometimes it just seems crazy how much work goes into scenes that we can hardly delineate.

GUILLERMO DEL TORO’S INCREDIBLE ‘CABINET OF CURIOSITIES’ SKETCHBOOKS TO BE PUBLISHED

You have to see only a single one of Guillermo del Toro’s lush, vivid movies to realize that the Mexican director, most recently of the Godzilla-style throwback Pacific Rim, is some kind of creative Tasmanian devil—another Tim Burton. It’s no surprise to learn that del Toro is a first-rate draftsman and has been obsessively marking up art notebooks for years. Fans have been wanting to a look at those notebooks for years, and finally, the day is nigh: Timed perfectly for Halloween gift season (is that even a thing?), Harper Design on October 29 is releasing a gorgeous edition of Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions. It may not be quite as spectacularly weird as Luigi Serafini’s Codex Seraphinianus, it’s pretty damn weird and spectacular in its own right.

Update: For those with a little extra cash, there’s a $650 Limited Edition

Lost Avatar/Korra Art Books

During the Avatar the Last Airbender” Legend and Legacy Panel, two art books were given away as prizes by accident. They were both signed, and one of them had a folded poster (also signed) on the inside of the book.
These art books were my books. The Avatar the Last Airbender book has signatures from so many of the talents from the show, especially a signature by Ryu next to my favorite Smellerbee. The funny thing is, I know how they were given as prizes by mistake, and I have an idea of which cosplayers may have them, but I have no idea how to contact them.
I am sure it is extremely exciting to be gifted art books with dozens of drawings, sentiments, and signatures, I hate to ask this… but if you have these books, would you contact me? I would like to send you brand new books in exchange for the return of my books. They are not signed for “Avatar_Mom”, they are signed for “Star”. That is my name…
I believe that cosplayer 7 from the cosplay contest, or Kuvira number 8 may be the awesome fans caring for them now. But, any of the winners could have them now, so I would love if fans would check. If you were at the Avatar the Last Airbender: Legend and Legacy Fan Panel, and know these great fans, (or you are these fans), I will not only send you your own copies, but I will pay for the shipping costs, and I will send you a thank you gift for their return. I have years of memories in both the art books. The poster in one of the books is a poster I had signed for a fan who could not attend SDCC.
Thank you so much for your time and thoughts everyone! Most important, thank you for attending our wonderful panels.

The first time the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders featured the tiny handmade creations of Denver, CO-based artist Evan Lorenzen we shared photos of his book entitled “The Mini Book of Major Events.” This time we’re paging through an equally tiny volume that explores a smaller, but no less delightful theme, “Life’s Lil Pleasures.” From the sounds of rain and chirping birds to eating cereal from your enemy’s skull, and balloons, this itty-bitty book is full miniature illustrations of things that make us glad to be alive, you know, the little things.

To check out more of Evan Lorenzen’s work, including tiny art, illustrations and animations, follow him right here on Tumblr at artandsuchevan or check out his website, Instagram feed and Facebook page.
