"With Framed Ink, Marcos Mateu distills his twenty-plus year career in feature animation into a clear, practical manual on the language of images. Marcos has a special eye for composition, lighting, and continuity that creates a tangible sense of mood and drama in all of his work."
- Jeffrey Katzenberg, Co-founder and CEO DreamWorks Animation SKG
"There are some people who draw in a way that looks like they load their pens with pure liquified fun. Concept artist Marcos Mateu has a wonderful character of line and a jaunty, casual style that makes it look like the lines danced out and created the image of their own accord. His loose, relaxed application of color, which careens between brilliant lights and rich, atmospheric darks, just adds to the visual treat. Mateu's drawings have just the right touch of exaggeration to give them extra visual appeal; lines are given an extra spring, forms bent out just a bit, and figures swirled into motion in a way that gives everything a sense of verve and life." - Charley Parker

It's really well written and beautifully, if minimally, illustrated in monochrome. I don't think I will watch a movie in the same way again as I have picked up so many tips on how shots are composed and these can easily be translated to concept paintings. If you are interested in this field or movie making then I would not hesitate in saying this book is an invaluable addition to your library. Absolutely first class resource.
Anyone who is interested in graphic novels, comics or is wanting to develop their own book or even a professional artist for that matter, would be silly to pass on this book. In my own opinion an essential item for any bookshelf.
