An Illustrated Life : Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artists, Illustrators and Designers. This book is a celebration of that special part of us that needs to draw, record, interpret, and play! When I got my copy, I was drawn like a magnet into the pages. This is a book that can be read and savored for a long, long time. There is so much, and it is all so rich. I carry it around with me throughout my day. Just looking at the beautiful cover makes me smile in anticipation. The 50 artists have very different styles and approaches, which I found broadening.

An Illustrated Journey captures the world through the eyes of 40 talented artists, illustrators and designers. But lucky for us, the sketchbooks captured here are lovely, creative, intimate windows into each artist's mind. You'll experience the wonder of seeing familiar sights through a fresh lens but, more important, you'll be inspired to set pen to paper and capture your own vistas. So, whether you're just returning to the art of drawing, abandoned by most of us after childhood, or you're looking for inspiration to take your illustration work in a new direction, An Illustrated Journey will take you on a wonderful trip of the imagination.

Some are professional animators, designers, illustrators and artists, but . I want my journals to look like an illustrated book.

Some are professional animators, designers, illustrators and artists, but equally many are happy amateurs with no loftier ambitions, for whom drawing is a passion and a companion. And no matter where they hail from or where they’re headed, no matter how they earn their airfare, there’s remarkable similarity in their experiences and passions. Two artists sitting side by side with their sketchbooks produce very disparate records of the experience. The challenge is to arrange the sketches and text on facing pages in a readable and interesting composition. Of course, I don’t know what will happen in the future.

I'm struggling to read this book all the way through, and needed to figure out why. Here's my takeaway: The book's elongated shape and heavy, glossy paper (beautiful quality) makes the book awkward to hold comfortably. Plain terms.... it's clunky and heavy. In addition, the small print challenges my over-40 eyes, especially in the illustrations. I squint to see the many wonderful examples shared by each artist. But I love the content so much that I'll keep reading - with my book propped and my readers nearby, because it's good stuff. Recommend! :-)

I had two of Dan's books and lost them a few years back. They were great but I was a realistic artist who worked in Graphite Pencil and occasionally in Pen and Ink. Even my sketches were realistic. But, also,a few years back, I lost my ability to draw and was devistated. Then I found Danny's books and they were so uplifting that I thought I could start again, and I did. But my drawings lacked the spontaneity and life they used to have. I've worked at it for years. And I mean worked. Not a good way to draw, consumed with the idea that I once again had to draw realisticlly to be any good. Recently, someone told me about Zentangles, they're fun and easy on the mind, no worries about perfection, tranquil. And then I remembered Danny's books and looked for them. This book arrived today and it is even more fun for someone who wants to draw from life... So, I say go for it. It's refreshing, fun, and gave a jump start to pure drawing without the worries of getting things "right." After all, "right" is in the eyes of the beholder and this is right for me.

This is the best book I've bought in a long time, and I buy a lot of books. Plus, I found it accidentally, while looking for another illustrator's book on Amazon. The author (Danny Gregory) appears to have collected a bunch of his friends, who happen to draw in sketchbooks. It feels like they all got together and showed their books to each other. What each artist has to say about his or her work (in their own words, first person) is as inspiring as what they have drawn.

I am not a visual artist of any kind, but while reading this book on a bus in Europe, I started drawing the people around me. They were amateurish sketches, but people would lean in and say, "Wow, did you draw that?" That was in March, and I have been drawing in my dream book and on sheets of paper since then. I'm sure it'll only be a matter of time before I buy a Moleskin of my own and a nice Rapidiograph pen and some watercolors, or maybe some watercolor pencils.

Speaking of which, each of the artists talk about their media. I love reading about what materials they like to use; everyone works so differently (although Moleskins do seem to be the predominant book of choice). I've already bought "An Illustrated Life" as a gift, too, for my son, who stopped drawing a few years ago but who has so much talent I wanted to inspire him to start again.

Also, I keep marveling at the price. So much color, great design and layout, and tons of scans must have gone into the making of this book, not to mention all writing in such different voices. It's even edited well, and that's a little bit surprising, considering I always find tons of errors in everything I read! I want the price to stay the same so I can keep buying it as a gift for others, but I also think it's worth twice as much.

I have read this book from cover to cover and enjoyed every minute, a lot.
This is a treasure. Ever wonder how artists work in their sketchbooks and how sketch books contribute to their lives and art? Here, then, if your book.

I have long been an advocate for sketchbooking. Anyone involved in making art, pretty-much art of any kind, should keep one and work in it frequently, if not daily. And this is certainly true of people who draw and sketch and paint. To me, no better way to get better!

But back to this book: Fascinating. You know what I found interesting? Not so much how these creative folks did things differently but instead how often they do things the same. Many like bound sketchbooks because they are unavoidably sequential, chronological, one page relating if you want to the next one. It's also hard to lose a drawing out of a bound book, as can so easily happen if the drawing is on a loose sheet of paper. A whole bunch refuse to tear out of their bound books a drawing or sketch that turns out sour--bad drawings are part of the story and good to learn from. Almost all of them pointed out how sketching a scene was superior to just photographing it because sketching involves them in the scene so much more deeply, because they remember so much more of it that way. And, so much more.

Well, I took notes. So many good ideas I want to incorporate in my own sketching. By the way, a lot of eye-candy too!

Highly recommended to everyone interested in art.

I bought An Illustrated Life initially thinking I was going to plow right through. To me, it's much better in small doses. With as many varying personalities, ideas and "art," it was a little daunting to continually read for longer than 15 minutes. The more I read at one sitting the more the people in the book would blend into one another. I guess I have a really short attention span. Either that, or can't handle the idea of being jolted from one artist to the next. Once I started to get into an artist, it was over.

The features ranged anywhere from slightly boring to downright amusing. Robert Crumb's was great with his unabashed straight-up honesty (at least I think he was being honest). The nice thing about featuring so many artists is that if you didn't like one you could move right onto the next.

I wish the format was a little larger so the images and text could be easier to view and read. Having said this I still think it's pretty well executed and presents the artists in a very attractive manner. I think it's a great coffee table book to pick up every now and again. It would certainly make a great gift to aspiring artists or to anyone who enjoys art or its process.
