The Art of the Adventures of Tintin is a book designed to tie-in with the forthcoming Tintin movies. The animation, visual effects and conceptual design for the movies are being created by Weta in New Zealand. As part of the launch of the book, Weta are holding two launch signing events at their Weta Cave stores in Wellington and Auckland. At both events, the author Chris Guise, the lead conceptual designer for Weta Workshop, will be present to sign the book and talk about the creative process. Chris, who started his design career as a caricaturist, will also give some tips and tricks while creating a caricature on the screen for all to see. Joining Chris at the Wellington launch only will be Weta Workshop conceptual designer Frank Victoria who was also instrumental in the design of The Adventures of Tintin.
