"Terrific book"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A lot of great drawings in here to refer to. Terrific for Art teachers and illustrators. Some of the drawings had me laughing my head off. Very clever.

Description

In this exquisite monograph, world-renowned illustrator and character designer Peter de Seve shows his favorite published and unpublished works. Inventive, eccentric, and often irreverent, they represent a lifetime of drawing . . . a very sketchy past. The imagery that springs from his pen marries colorful personalities with expert storytelling, and wild flights of imagination with a masterly drawing technique that harkens back to a bygone era of impeccable draftsmanship and craft. Copiously illustrated with hundreds of paintings and drawings, including never-before-published New Yorker cover roughs, behind-the-scenes animation development artwork, and personal sketches, A Sketchy Past is the first comprehensive survey of his work. A career-spanning biographical essay written by historian Amid Amidi, along with comments from de seve throughout the book, offer a unique insight into his approach to illustration and his artistic process.
