Omigosh, Danny Gregory's new book just arrived! Christmas came early...

An Illustrated Life: Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artists, Illustrators and Designers

...and I couldn't be more delighted!  It's HUGE, 266 pages full of inspiration and delight, beautifully designed and conceived--Danny, you've done it again! 

This is from HOW Books, one of F & W Publications' imprints, and it shows their usual professionalism and dedication.  I can't wait till I have time to sit and delight in every page!  There's a great deal to read, as well, about how the artists felt and thought and how they work.  This one will be a winner!

So many names I know, represented here--France Belleville, Enrique Flores, Rama Hughes, Amanda Kavanagh, Jane LaFazio, Paul Madonna, Roz Stendahl and SO many more--far too many to list, and congratulations to all.

A very poignant entry is near the end--I just reached that place, as I write.  It belongs to Cindy Woods, who passed away from cancer earlier this week after a long and courageous battle. I have a lump in my throat seeing her work again, and I find myself so wishing she had been able to see it here as well.  Friends like my dear Laura Frankstone who knew her in person tell me that she was passionate about her art, and it shows.

You did well, Cindy, it's touching and honest and brilliant, as always.
