The Art of Monsters University

The Art of Monsters University

By Karen Paik • Preface by John Lasseter • Foreword by Dan Scanlon

In Monsters, Inc. (2001), Pixar Animation Studios introduced audiences to the #1 scaring
team, Mike and Sulley, and the monstrous world behind our bedroom closet doors. In
this prequel to the much-loved classic, Mike and Sulley meet for the first time at Monsters
University—where they are joined by a few familiar faces and a host of delightful new
characters—as they seek to attain degrees in scaring. Author Karen Paik goes behind
the scenes to interview the film’s many artists for the ultimate inside look at the conception
and production of this highly anticipated film. Featuring full-color concept art
including character sculpts, color scripts, storyboards, and more, The Art of Monsters
fully explores the process of creating this new and expanded Monsters universe.
