Here Come the Incredibles!

Pixar's Conceptual Art
From the Animated Film

THE ART OF THE INCREDIBLES, a new book published by Chronicle Books, culls the best conceptual art created for the Walt Disney Pictures presentation of a Pixar Animation Studios film, The Incredibles.

THE ART OF THE INCREDIBLES features the fabulous and otherwise never-seen movie development art with quotes from the creative team of artists, designers, and directors.

The Incredibles is an action-packed story about a family of superheroes forced to live an underground suburban existence.

The head of the family, Mr. Incredible - once one of the world's greatest Superheroes - now finds himself fighting boredom and a bulging waistline.

Itching to get back into action, Mr. Incredible gets his chance when a mysterious communication summons him to a remote island for a top-secret assignment.

When he discovers that an evil genius bent on diabolical revenge is behind the mystery, his family flies to the rescue for an extraordinary battle of wits and superpowers.

The only Incredibles book published for adults, THE ART OF THE INCREDIBLES gathers the best of The Incredibles concept art and wonderfully illustrates the process behind the animation.

Covering a widespectrum of media, from collages to sketches to intricate color paintings, this behind-the-scenes odyssey offers insight into the elaborate creative process of animation.

In addition, THE ART OF THE INCREDIBLES includes a wealth of interviews with the creative forces behind Pixar, from the director and producers to character designers and art directors. These talented individuals explain how their ideas and visions are shaped, how the colors and lighting are developed, and how they balance realism with the fantasy of animation.

Each image in THE ART OF THE INCREDIBLES is labeled with the artist's name and the style of the drawing (pencil, charcoal, pastel, acrylic, markers, etc.). In addition, Pixar's Creative Director John Lasseter and the film Writer/Director Brad Bird provide the insightful forewords to the book.
