1st printing. From cartoons to graphic novels, from humor to superheroes, comics are the world's most popular form of illustration. And, as in all forms of illustration, artists and designers experiment with visual ideas, image-and-word play, narrative sequencing, and stylistic flourishes through sketching. What we rarely see is the creative thinking - the doodling - that leads to fully formed visual ideas and stories. Comics Sketchbooks presents the private notebooks of eighty-two of the world's most inventive, innovative, and successful artists alongside new talents and emerging illustrators. Featuring: Sotos Anagnos, Chris Battle, Lou Beach, Kaye Blegvad, Peter Blegvad, Russ Braun, Steve Brodner, Charles Burns, Chris Capuozzo, Lilli Carre, Seymour Chwast, Colonel Moutarde, R.
