The Art of Blue Sky Studios
It’s hard to believe it’s been just over a decade since Fox helped launch Blue Sky into the world of theatrical feature animation with the global hit franchise starter Ice Age back in 2002 — the fifth installment of which is planned for 2016. Since then, the studio has continually upped the CG animation bar with film adaptations and lushly designed original stories, from Robots to Rio.
For the first time, you can leaf through a hefty coffee-table hardcover that recounts the studio’s journey from live-action visual-effects company to a driving force in CG animation. Thanks to exclusive access to Blue Sky’s archives (and the talented artists who have filled it), this edition boasts never-before-seen concept art, early sketches, stunning film stills and more eye candy to tide you over until their next ambitious project: the first-ever CG Peanuts movie, coming next year.
