Guillermo's diary!

If you've ever watched any of Guillermo del Toro's movies (and if you're reading this site, I'm quite sure you have) and wondered where he gets the ideas for some of the fantastical creatures he comes up with, you're in for a treat. The New York Times has posted a new feature called "Dear Diary" where del Toro shares pages from his HELLBOY II visual journal along with audio commentary from Guillermo himself talking about the creatures. The pages highlight The Beanstalk (right), Abe, Mr. Wink, Cathedral Head and The Deadly Root. The writings are in Spanish (obviously) but I like that on the Beanstalk drawing it says in big all-caps "FACELESS CAVEBERSERKER." And that's why we love Guillermo. There's a lot here to look at, listen to and enjoy but if you haven't seen the movie yet, there may be some minor spoilers. Del Toro told the paper that he may someday publish his journals for all his fans to read but sadly there are no formal plans. To check out the HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY diary, click here to head to the NY Times.

This is hard to describe via text, ironically... But if all the pages were scanned and each page had a translated companion page and you could select what to read in the way you tag photos in myspace or facebook.

It would have to be an interactive interface. you could also select what language you want to read it in in the same way you choose the language on your ipod. hell you could make it to function on items like the iphone. I'm positive it could be done.

Wow, I hope someone is

The problem with that is you'd need to transcribe the text (since computers suck at reading handwriting, no matter how good it is) and then you loose half the fun of seeing someone's diary. ie: the handwriting.

Amazing...

But if it were published would there be an English translation to go along with it?

Or would it be possible to release it as a digital media that allows for translation to a variety of languages with a click of a mouse?

Hey that's a good idea...

He showed some of his diary on Jimmy Kimmel recently (last week?), and he did mention on the show that he may publish it.
