My name is Chogrin. I'm an illustrator / designer from Guayaquil, Ecuador. You may know me for my artwork (chogrin.tumblr.com) or for some of the other art shows I've organized & curated (The 3G Show, Shell Shock, Dino-Dna).
This art blog tribute is dedicated to Guillermo del Toro's film "Pacific Rim." Fans of Del Toro have been waiting almost 5 years for the director's return to cinema. I couldn't think of a better way to welcome him back than by paying tribute to his latest film with a group of amazing talented artists from around the world. If you've seen the film or have become a fan, I hope you enjoy this tribute as much as I did putting it together.
If you like Guillermo's other films, you should check out another art tribute I put together for Guillermo's original film trilogy (Cronos, Devil's Backbone, Pan's Labyrinth) here: http://gdtart.blogspot.com/
This beautiful piece of art (above) by Maria Vitan was used as the blog's main banner. You can check out Maria's work here: www.mariakvitan.com
One of the biggest inspirations for putting together this tribute blog was Choper Nawers amazing line-up of Jaegers he illustrated a month before the movie even came out! Check out all of Choper's Jaegers below.
