Chris McDonnell avec Steven Universe: Art & Origins
Steven Universe: Art & Origins is the first book to take fans behind the scenes of the groundbreaking and boundlessly creative Cartoon Network animated series Steven Universe. Bursting with concept art, production samples, early sketches, storyboards, and exclusive commentary, this lavishly illustrated companion book offers a meticulous written and visual history of the show, as well as an all-access tour of the creative team's process. Steven Universe: Art & Origins reveals how creator Rebecca Sugar, the writers, the animators, and the voice actors work in tandem to bring this adventure-packed television series to life.
'For the uninitiated, Steven is a plucky young chubster who plays the ukulele and loves catbased candy - and he just happens to be a Crystal Gem, one of an legendary group of warriors which once included his late Mom, Rose. There's so much more to Steven and his universe than that, but that alone is more than many people know. Sugar's inspiring achievement deserves to be better appreciated and well-known the world over, so McDonnell has performed a kindness here by penning a very useful guide, packed with gorgeous imagery to pore over.' --Geeky Monkey
