style analysis 2

22 03 2011

it is obvious that we are surrounded by different styles, just look around. there is the latest fancy mobile phone, the new haircut of a friend, the look of an ‘in’-magazine. even more so when we look around in our cities, – architecture, sportscars, the latest fashion. in museums or books we can get familiar with styles developing over the centuries, and in movies we are confronted with phantastic looks of the future. we are constantly influenced by these images and they affect our own visual ideas.
as I wrote in the first chapter, I am interested in my field – the design in animation – in the creation process of the most stunning styles in some of the films in the past and will try to analyze and document how the artists who were involved worked.
