Book Review: The Art of Rick and Morty

The Art of Rick and Morty - 01


We finally have an artbook for the popular Rick and Morty animated series after three seasons. Hurrah!

When I first saw the cover art, I thought it was rather dull. But, it's actually a pretty cool cover because what you don't see are illustrations printed with glow-in-the-dark paint. If you look at the cover in a dark room, it's a seriously cool idea.

This is a pretty large hardcover with 224 pages. It's quite thick. Collected within are the concept art and production art for the characters, props and environments. The pages are just packed with so much content. There's also a lot of text talking about the characters and designs. For example, just for Rick, the artists would talk about his head structure, his burps, unibrow and blinks. And you also get to see the different interdimensional versions of Rick, tiny Rick and Cronenberg Rick (gasp!). There's so much fun to read and learn about each character and as you know, there are a lot of (ridiculous in a good way) characters in the show. Some names of the characters are just hilarious. Birdperson, Mr Poopybutthole, Principal Vagina and more. LOL

The artworks looks great and funny at the same time. Other than characters, we also have spaceships, weapons and gadgets. And there are plenty of pages on the environment art as well, and those are detailed and beautiful.

The last chapter of the book talks about the production, the scripts, development, sketches and storyboards.

This is a fantastic book that gives you a glimpse into the crazy, funny and whimsical world of Rick and Morty. Highly recommended to all the fans, and also those who like animation art or character design.
