Unlike Paul Thomas Ander­son, with his infu­ri­at­ing­ly per­fect sense of visu­al bal­ance, or Alfon­so Cuarón, whose Oscar-sweep­ing Grav­i­ty required the inven­tion of a nov­el, hyper-real­isti c film­ing method, del Toro doesn’t deal with real life.

In the past, I’ve drawn journals that are gathering places for ideas, as well as project plans and notations. He has a rich and well, creepy vision that he carefully constructs starting with detailed sketchbooks. Or, the illustration of his journals, though the collected ideas or the sketchbooks of McKean’s work would likely be extraordinary.I am very much looking forward to Guillermo del Toro's dark adult fairy tale, Pan's Labyrinth; I also deeply love looking at people's journals and sketchbooks. It's a habit I've never managed to cultivate: as much as I find people's sketchbooks to be the deeply personal stream-of-conscious sprawl of the inner wriggle of their thoughts, I am far too self-conscious to ever work in a medium that can't be constantly revised; I am deeply envious of the people who do.
