"This film is a vibrant fantasy-adventure, tells the legend of Manolo, a conflicted hero and dreamer who sets off on an epic quest through magical, mythical and wondrous worlds in order to rescue his one true love and defend his village."Book of Life Movie Concept Illustration, Art Director Paul Sullivan © 2014 TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX

Book of Life Movie: Paul Sullivan, Art Director Presentation

Paul Sullivan, Art Director for the animated film “Book of Life” and fellow RMCAD Illustration Grad will be on campus at Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design on Friday, Nov. 7!

He will give a lecture/presentation in the Mary Harris Auditorium at 12:30-1:30 followed by a Q & A on the movie. The community is invited to join us for this FREE event. He will also be taking orders for autographed ART OF THE BOOK OF LIFE books!

It is self-evident that Paul had a spectacular vision for this movie and brought it to life using his stellar illustration skills. The images are so fanciful and a feast for the eyes. (Check out a few early images and reviews on his blog here.)
