Guillermo Del Toro: In Service of Monsters

I am very excited to be a part of Gallery 1988's latest group show, curated by Chogrin & Gary Deocampo. This tribute to Guillermo Del Toro looks like it's not to be missed.

Del Toro's movies definitely have some of the most memorable monster designs. If you want more insight into his thought process I'd suggest checking out his art book/diary: Cabinet of Curiosities. For more about his film process, track down Robert Rodriguez's interview with him on his new series, The Director's chair. If you're a film nerd like myself, these director interviews by Rodriguez are amazing and feel like a film school class in all the best ways possible. RR asks the best interview questions about the process and Del Toro's interview, in a gallery with original Frazettas behind him no less, is definitely a treat. You can follow updates on the art show at the following Tumblr link.
