Last december I managed to check out the At Home With Monsters exhibit at the Art Gallery of Ontario here in Toronto. It contained items, artwork, sculptures, props and costumes from the personal collection of filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro, director of such films as Pacific Rim, Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, Blade 2, Crimson Peak and his latest, The Shape of Water. It was such an inspiring and magical display of work. I’d planned on doing art based on my experience there and first out the of gate is this drawing of the Angel of Death. This inspired creation comes from the film Hellboy 2: The Golden Army.
I can practically guarantee there will be more art based on this fantastic exhibit as it continues to haunt my dreams in the most beautiful ways possible.
