The Artist Within


hey all,

i wanted to pass along something cool to you to check out ...i recently had the privilege to meet the author/photographer for an absolutely awesome brand new book coming out from Dark Horse.
it is entitled "The Artist Within"
it is such a great book that profiles so many legendary cartoonists and comic book artists. wonderful pictures and small bios of people such as Sergio Aragones, Jack Kirby, Al Hershfeild, Big Daddy Roth, Mort Drucker, Jack Davis, ... it is very inspiring and cool to see them all in there "studios." and actually it's helped me explain to my kids who some of the famous cartoonists are that i sometimes babble on about. ;)
anyway,if you get the chance, go and peruse it and you may find something for an early Christmas gift.
:)

all the best,
mike . . .
