Julia Rothman is a brilliant and talented illustrator and textile designer (among other things, jeez). She also maintains the terrific blog, Book By Its Cover, which features great reviews and news of the newest, most beautiful art books; and also generously and enthusiastically showcases sketchbooks of so many artists. She recently put together Drawn In: A Peek into the Inspiring Sketchbooks of 44 Fine Artists, Illustrators, Graphic Designers, & Cartoonists, and it just came out.
She asked me to do the foreword! So I get to have my name on the cover and everything,
which is crazy exciting, especially considering the people and the drawings in this thing.
Sorry for the grainy webcam pictures. I can't find my camera. Also you should go to the bookshop and look at it/buy it so you can see it in real life!
Julia also has more, clearer, prettier views inside here.
If you're lucky enough to be in New York, there will be a signing and party on June 30, with many of the featured artists present. Have some drinks and mill around with some hot artists on a summer evening! Isn't that what life in the city is all about, babay?
