Local Fauna: The Art of Peter de Seve | Author: Carter Goodrich

Peter de Seve’s work spans four decades and various media, from magazines, books, and television commercials to Broadway posters and character designs for animated feature films. He is perhaps best recognized for his many covers for The New Yorker magazine and his character designs for the blockbuster Ice Age franchise (Scrat is a veritable international celebrity). De Seve’s has also contributed to such films as Finding Nemo, Robots, The Little Prince, and The Grinch, to name only a few. He is currently busy at work on various animated projects in both the United States and Europe.

Local Fauna showcases de Seve’s most iconic illustrations and designs alongside a plentiful selection of sketches and personal work that have become fan favourites across social media. This monograph opens a doorway into his visual universe, and it includes behind-the-scenes insight into his process, from a character or cover’s first conception to the final product.
