This is one of the first development images I made. I wanted to take a picture from the book and paint a faithful translation with volume and light.
I tried to make it AS FAITHFUL AS POSSIBLE to the source material. I hate it when people change stuff too much on adaptations. People like it for a reason! It was fun to interpret Dr. Seuss’ graphic style and find visual solutions for the film. The guys over at Blue Sky put the bar up so high on “Horton hears a who!”
