I'm in love...I'm in love...

Guess what I picked up last night? Danny Gregory's An Illustrated Life. My heart skips a beat every time I open the book. It is definitely, most definitely, one of THE best books of 2008. You need it. Now. The book is FULL and weighty. Lots of artists. All types of artists. Some you know very well and others you will get to know. The book contains written insight into each artist. It's also chock full of journal pages and even-get this-pages of their work space?!?!!? Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my mouth. Seriously, I am in love with this book.

Danny Gregory has NEVER disappointed me with a book publication. This one is just jaw dropping. You'll want one for the holidays. You'll want to give copies of it to every artist and wanna be artist on your list.
