Discover how Marvel designed Ant-Man and The Wasp

Visitors to Gnomon’s Hollywood campus will be able to discover how Marvel Studios designed its latest blockbuster just a week after the movie hits cinemas, at The Art of Ant-Man & The Wasp.

An exclusive free talk by the firm’s concept art team, held at Gnomon on Thursday 12 July 2018, the event provides a unique opportunity to see character designs and key illustrations from the film.

Described by Variety as “faster, funnier, and more cunningly confident” than the 2015 original, Ant-Man and The Wasp returns Marvel’s size-changing superhero to the big screen.

As well as Ant-Man’s own suit, visual challenges explored in the two-and-a-half hour Gnomon presentation include costume design for new romantic interest Hope van Dyne/The Wasp.

Led by visual development supervisor Andy Park, the panel features senior concept illustrators Jackson Sze and Anthony Francisco, and concept artists Stephen Schirle, Tully Summers and Ian Joyner.

As well as showing behind-the-scenes images from Ant-Man and The Wasp, the team will discuss Marvel Studios’ design workflow, and the pivotal role that 3D tools now play in concept work.
