Book Review: Shrek: The Art of the Quest

Shrek: The Art of the Quest - 01

This is scrapbook style art book from Insight Editions. It's a big vertical hardcover book that is housed inside a thick cardboard box.

The pages are filled to the brim with art. Nothing less since it contains work from all three Shrek movies. They are arranged based on location, in an order as they appeared in the movies.

Included are concept art, matte paintings, sketches, character designs, storyboards and movie prop designs. By movie prop designs, I mean art like wanted posters, paintings, cupboards, signages and other items that are used in Shrek's world. Storyboard artists have drawings of Shrek, Donkey and Puss in Boots in their own interpretation. The amazing variety of style showcased is breathtaking and fun.

In between the pages are little booklets with more art. Everything in the book is well captioned from the perspective of storytelling.

It's a well worth wait after the three movies before this book was published. It's very inspiring and makes me want to pick up my pen and draw something.

Highly recommended for fans of Shrek, concept artists, production designers or people who just like art.
