Truth be told, I’ve been a fan of Kerby Rosanes for quite some time. The moment I laid eyes on his incredibly detailed sketches I was blown away by his talent. He’s the author of several books, including coloring books (if you’re into that), and he’s now come out with a brand new book called Sketchy Stories, that’s presented as a Moleskine notebook. Loaded with secret doodles, elaborate sketches, whimsical lines and detailed patterns, it’s a must-have for anyone who has ever picked up a pen and doodled before.
Interspersed with his artwork, Kerby also includes techniques, tips, inspirations, and influences. In total, it’s a 128 page book. I liked this review on Amazon: “This is a journal-like book with an elastic closure filled with beautiful and clever illustrations. It is the type of art that you can look at over and over again and always see something new. It isn’t specifically suggested that you can color this art in but you could as it is all black and white line art. The art has meanings, puns and double entendre along with cute little creatures, deer, birds and all sorts of things. A complete feast for the eyes!”
Here’s some of the work you’ll find inside.
Couldn’t you just stare at each piece for hours? You can pick up Sketchy Stories on the Quarto Knows website or on Amazon.
