Volume 2 - 1st printing. "Art from the Outside Looking In!" The phrase "Out of Picture" comes from film terminology - whenever something is cut from a movie it is declared "out of picture," or "OOPed." In the words of one of the creators, "while it can be frustrating to let go of one's ideas, it's the pursuit and exploration of those ideas that can be the most fulfilling. We wanted to share some of our personal ideas outisde of our film work with you - out of picture." The result is a stunning collection of full-color graphic novel short stories that pushes the medium to entirely new heights. The creators all hail from Academy Award-winning Blue Sky Studios, and have worked on films such as Toy Story 3 and Ice Age 3. Softcover, 9-in. x 11 1/2-in., 240 pages, full color. Cover price $26.00.
