With all the huss and fuss of the new and dedicated to them movie – The Minions – I was wondering “whodunit”? Who was the man behind the little small yellow creatures and how did it all started.

This is a start – thanks Dictionary.com for the word that just gave me this idea of “exposing” some great designers and their work on motion pictures, games, entertainment in general.
