Now published in paperback, Sketchbooks provides a revealing glimpse into the inner workings and private inspiration of creatives from the worlds of advertising, design, graphic design, fashion design, art, street art and illustration. Intimate and often unseen, artists' own notebooks document sources of inspiration as well as the journey to final execution. They show ideas and their evolution into accomplished works. Fresh and spontaneous, their style connects directly with current illustration trends. The material is complemented by interviews in which artists explain how they use their sketchbooks and how they relate to finished works. These, along with the sketchbooks themselves, give readers a direct and unmediated insight into the process of research and creation.
Richard Brereton began his career in the London and New York art markets before becoming a television producer for the BBC. He currently lives and works in London and is the editor of GRAPHIC. He is the author of Cut & Paste (also Laurence King Publishing).
