Friday Inspiration: Danny Gregory – An Illustrated Life

Danny Gregory’s book ‘An Illustrated Life‘ arrived this week.  This is part of my continuing exploration of how visual artists engage with their chosen medium on a daily basis.   Keeping a visual journal seems to be a common way to keep the energy up and to stay creative.  ‘An Illustrated Life‘ is not a new book, rather it was published in 2008, is a collection of example pages of the journals of 50 illustrators, artists, and designers with a short introduction from each.  After a quick flip through, I’m part of the way through it in more detail – it’s going to be something that I’m going to enjoy dipping into on a regular basis over the next few weeks.  A video for the book is below.

Danny’s other books are well worth checking out as is his website, where you can find examples of his journals.
