There's reason to get excited when given the opportunity to look inside the creative process of a person you admire and respect. For myself and many others here, Guillermo del Toro is one of those people.

Here now, thanks to the folks at The New Yorker, we've got video of the monstrous goodness that pours out of the brilliant filmmaker's mind and onto the pages of his beautiful sketchbooks. As the video itself mentions, the sketchbooks are very much pieces of art in and of themselves.

If you see a cool video online you think would be perfect for this spotlight, drop us a line at yourvideos@joblo.com.

Extra Tidbit: If you have the time, there's an excellent New Yorker profile on Del Toro as well which you can check out RIGHT HERE.

Glorious. Too bad the plant monster was made digitally, but I guess it would have been about impossible do make it any other way.

Amazing!

Del Toro offers rewards to people who find these notebooks if he loses them. On one hand I would love to find one to see all of the work and be able to keep a token of the mans genius, but I would never want to stem the flow of his ideas by keeping them to myself! Must have been the greatest assignment to be able to look first hand at the origins of such beautiful and well thought out monsters/characters. GDT is the MAN!

Hellboy 2 is probably my favorite of Del Toro's movies (Yes I've seen all of them and No, I don't think Pan's Labyrinth is better, though it is very good) and the reason for it being my favorite is the ridiculous amount of creativity and passion I can see in every frame of that film.

This was a really fascinating insight into the mind of a true mad genius of film. I just hope he's able to secure a solid budget for Hellboy 3 so that we can get more of this sort of creativity in films.
