Book Review Week: Day 5

Yet another book I learned about through the author’s blog: Drawn In by Julia Rothman. Julia gathered the sketchbooks of 44 artists, illustrators, graphic designers and cartoonists and created a lovely tome that I will go back to time and time again for inspiration. The foreword by Vanessa Davis is illustrated in a sketchbook, which I think is classic. Artists include Jill Bliss, Camilla Engman, Jessica Hiche, Mike Perry, and Mike Lowery. The sketchbooks are shot so that you see the entire sketchbook opened to particular pages. It feels more tactile that way.

A great source for inspiration, and a bit of insight into the creative minds of these artists.
