Not a lot happening creatively for the last few days so I thought it might be a good time to mention a few books that got my attention lately and have really inspired me to keep creating. (Aside from the last few days, that is. Ahem.)
The first is Danny Gregory's An Illustrated Life. It's essentially a peek into the illustrated journals/sketchbooks of artists and their thoughts on why the journals are important to them and their work. I was immediately into it when I realized Robert Crumb had a piece in it but I think I've since adopted some new favorites.
Some friends of mine have been giving me copies of Graham Roumieu's Bigfoot books which I highly recommend to anyone who laughs. They are ridiculously funny. The titles alone make me giggle: In Me Own Words, Me Write Book and I Not Dead. When two hunters in the southern US claimed to have found the body of Bigfoot last year, he was quick to issue a press release.
