Baby M presents "Guillermo Del Toro"

Hi all. Baby M here! I’m taking over to show off a cool exhibit I went to this past Saturday at the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

Guillermo del Toro is the mastermind behind great movies such as Pan’s Labyrinth and Crimson Peak. He is a huge fan of monsters and horror and has a whole house (called the Bleak House) that is solely dedicated to his collection of artifacts, books, paintings, etc that he has collected or made over the years. The MIA was lucky enough to display some of his collection and I was lucky enough to be able to go.


There were some amazing things on display: life size models from Pan’s Labyrinth, concept art from Disney movies, lots of interesting paintings that I could see Lady M wanting to hang in her house. 

(Be warned, tons of pictures are below. Some of them aren't super great quality).



 Concept art for Pinocchio

 Inspiration for the faun in Pan's Labyrinth














 He is also a huge comic book fan





 This was one of my favorite paintings there
This guy said bye to us as we left the exhibit


Thanks everyone for reading!! Hope you enjoyed!

    1. I liked that one a lot too! There were a couple others next to it that were really bright and looked almost 3D and looked really nice too.
