Drawn In E them Featuring a spectrum of creators from illustrators and fine artists to graphic designers and cartoonists this books offers an inside full color glimpse into pages filled with pencil and pen sketches thumbnail drawings unpublished comics elaborate collages loose clippings and much Become inspired by these incredible artists and the pages they share in Drawn I love looking at the sketches and unfinished work of accomplished artists for three reasons First it helps to know that these people are human not everything they do is a finished masterpiece Second it helps me understand how they create their art A finished polished artwork is an impenetrable to a beginner I think as seeing the exterior of a building What's inside? How did it come to be? By seeing preliminary work we can see how it was constructed and that's immensely valuable to understanding how to make something like it Third I believe it's the easiest way to see the artist's raw talent and practiced ability Anyone can fiddle with a line long enough until it becomes the right shape But someone who can clearly put that same perfect line down in one fluid stroke on the first try that's a person with serious ability I admire that person I aspire to be that personSeeing the sketchbooks of artists is even better than just seeing in progress art intended to be a 'finished' work not only are we seeing the raw unpolished artwork itself we're also witnessing the germination of the ideas themselves at the very font of creativity I've been carrying a small notebook around with me for over a year now and I've come to treasure my little notes and thumbnail sketches When I'm facing a blank screen or blank piece of paper and I need an idea I no longer have to dream something up from thin air Now I can just look at my previous half formed ideas and let one of those tickle my fancy It doesn't matter that an idea comes to me in the car or when I'm getting out of bed in the morning I can capture it then and do it later Sometimes much later Before I was just letting all of those ideas and images disappear uickly forgetting them forever What a waste that wasIn reading the interviews with these artists I get the impression many of them use their sketchbooks for this purpose as wellIn addition many of them have kept sketchbooks as a discipline for so long that it has sharply honed their creative abilities as well as their artistic skill So what we're really seeing is pure powerful creative gold freshly dug still in the ore from people who have been doing that sort of thing for a long time I'm grateful to be able to see itThere is a pretty good mix of art styles represented in Drawn In Some of it I liked very very much All of it I appreciatedThe unexpected benefit of reading the interviews was getting the broad range of purpose the various artists had for keeping a sketchbook Many of their uses I'd never thought about before like the sketchbook itself being a handcrafted piece of bookbinding art in its own right It was very inspiringTags art artists drawing notes books as art panda bears typography creativity raw talent

How do the sketchbooks work in conjunction with actual productsbooksfinished illustrations? What is the relationship between your daily life and work? How did you come to do the kind of work you do? That approaches enriches the sketchbook entries and I almost always found the responses interestingAs a young writer I always liked The Paris Review interviews with writers about their processes and still do like reading about process for writers and artists I like the appendices to comic nook series that feature drafts and early sketches This book is all sketches which is just fine for me The last sketchbook type collection I read is Jillian Tamanki's Boundless and I liked it a lot Important to see the edges of art With some of these artists like comics guy Anders Nilsen it is interesting how he keeps his finished project rough and sketchy like an actual sketchbook to help us get a feel for the process in the final product a keeping' it real feel
