An Illustrated Life by Danny Gregory
posted: December 16, 2008
Drawger is well represented in a new book called An Illustrated Life - Drawing inspiration from the private sketchbooks of artists, illustrators and designers.  There's alot of amazing work here from people whose work I know well, and from people I've never heard of. Danny Gregory compiled and edited this book as a way of creating the book about sketchbooks that he always sought. 47 illlustrators, artist and designers are included offering a wide range of approaches, techniques and subject matter. For each contributor there is a healthy sample of sketchbook pages as well as copy that was based on questionaires that Danny sent out. A cool holiday gift. Available here.
Here are some sample pages from fellow Drawgers.

Gotta hand it to this Danndy gregory character. Rounds up a bunch of chumps to give him free content and peddles it on Amazon. Then said chumps promote it for him. No wonder illustrators are the laughing stock of the visual communications world.

Illustrators are the laughing stock of the visual communications world? I thought mimes were the laughing stock of the visual communications world. [you wouldn't happen to be a mime, would you Mr. Eberhardt?]

Thanks, Hal. I am looking forward to seeing more of this book. Some of my favorite stuff from fellow artists are seeing their looser, more free artwork. The stuff thats produced before the clock starts ticking and the deadlines become an issue.

I apologize, sometimes I can be a real weenie.
