    The movie was so-so, but I really like this picture.

    Interestingly, Mako is on the left in this illustration.

    It’s funny, being a lapsed graphic artist, I caught a lot of that on some level, but not thoroughly enough.
    With this article, it dawned on me why I lost interest and moved away from that vocation: Because of pressure to produce more work faster and dumber.
    The fun and story were wrung-out by the corporate, the pace, with the need to please the purse strings.
    Seems kinda simple now, but took years to realize; granted, I didn’t think about it that much ’cause it sucked to do so.

    Del Toro seems to have a ‘one for them’, ‘one for me’ philosophy, technically making Crimson Peak one of ‘his’, ie – a more personal piece not specifically designed for a commercial audience.

    I’m glad Del Toro didn’t waste his time on The Hobbit. This franchise has been played out for a long time. I have no idea where ATMOM is at production wise, but I really hope he achieves his dream of making it; with reservations. The script is going to need a lot of work. The original novella has virtually no plot.

    Thoughtfully said.
    Though, even with little plot, Del Toro does tend to make make purty pictures.
