Venture into the Unknown! A complete tour through the development and production of the Emmy-winning animated miniseries Over the Garden Wall, this volume contains hundreds of pieces of concept art and sketches, and a comprehensive look at the show’s breathtaking production art.
From the original Tome of the Unknown: Harvest Melody pilot, through each of the episodes, and beyond, take a strange and wonderful journey with Wirt, Greg, and Beatrice. Learn how the award-winning backgrounds were created, see animation storyboards, and even take a behind-the-scenes look at the production of the Mondo vinyl soundtrack and “For Sara” mix tape, as well as the ongoing Boom! Studios comics. Sean Edgar guides the tour, which includes commentary from creators Patrick McHale and Nick Cross.
The Art of Ove the Garden Wall is one of the most beautiful book about the process of making a television show.
I know this book just seem for people who already watched the show, and yes, maybe it is because there are spoilers, but I think anyone who is interested about how to make animated series HAVE to check out this book.
The only thing I’m not completely enthusiastic about is that like me you prefer to read book on e-book format, The Art of over the Garden Wall could be very difficult to read comfortably on a ereader, tablet or smartphone.
