Here is a fantastic collection of Guillermo del Toro's gorgeous concept art that he draws in his sketchbook. Davies’ — has compiled Fashion Designers’ Sketchbooks, a 208-page tome that collects the wonderfully revealing scrawls and illustrations of 50 top-flight fashion designers.

Del Toro in reading a British paper (for a story in LA) about how he left the design book for his production of “Pan’s Labyrinth” — an extraordinary venture of imagination — in a taxi. That got me thinking about the act of creativity, the progression of creative work — and the nature of inspiration. Dries Van Noten, for example, collects photographs, embellishments and fabric swatches, while Chanel’s resident genius Karl Lagerfeld rarely touches any material, filling pages upon pages with deft, effervescent watercolor sketches. The WIRED conversation illuminates how technology is changing every aspect of our lives—from culture to business, science to design. The fourth is a page from his work on Hell­boy, and the fifth is art for his most recent film, Pacif­ic Rim.

Famously, del Toro once lost his sketchbook for Pan’s Labyrinth (before going into production) by forgetting it in the back seat of a London cab. That idea of art, exploration — seasonal or otherwise — it’s an intriguing path to the examination of content – if you’re on the path to finding something, discovering that renewed edge, walking the perimeter of the work — how do you get there?

del Toro is an eccentric director of sporadic brilliance — Cronos and The Devil's Backbone are brilliant, but he managed to mangle Mike Mignola's Hellboy into a travesty — but I am extremely charmed by the haltering Mexican lilt of his describing of his wonderful sketchbook. The Guardian Sket notes that there’s some­thing of da Vinci’s note­books in del Toro’s records: the small, neat script, mixed in with the won­der­ful­ly detailed sketch­es, com­bine to give the impres­sion of del Toro doing his best to record the tor­rent of his imag­i­na­tion before the thoughts dis­ap­pear.

I am very much looking forward to Guillermo del Toro’s dark adult fairy tale, Pan’s Labyrinth; I also deeply love looking at people’s journals and sketchbooks. The concept of the journal as a working place — a point of gathering — a gazement, is something that is disappearing — with literary strategists like Neil Gaiman, their journals are blogs. Titan Books will use the information you provide on this form to be in touch with you and to provide updates and marketing. Even working with Tom Cruise, or director Tony Scott, JJ Abrams, David Fincher, I’ve often sorted through sketches of storyboards and related materials to finalize approaches for design.

Guillermo del Toro, Author: Guillermo del Toro is the acclaimed director of The Shape of Water, Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, and Crimson Peak. Packed with indecipherable notes, intriguing doodles and an overall hypnotizing look to the page, in general. In the past, I’ve drawn journals that are gathering places for ideas, as well as project plans and notations. Similar in design to del Toro's leather-bound volumes, this sketchbook features an inspirational message from the director along with selected examples of his incredible art. I did have the chance to work with Tim Burton on Sleepy Hollow, for Paramount Studios — and during that time, the beginning and pre-production of that effort, I sorted through imagery from his projection of the visualization of the film — including, like Guillermo’s renderings of his imaginative creatures and productions — show the conceptions of set design and character.
