Descriptions du produit

An Excuse to Draw Perched on a little camping stool, artist Tommy Kane draws what he sees. His remarkable career has taken him around the world, and he has documented the people and places he's encountered in his unique painting and drawing style--on location--wherever he goes. He calls New York home, but has a growing international following. `An Excuse to Draw `is the first book-length collection of Kane's work, and it is filled with full-page illustrations and reproductions of pages taken from his sketch books. Kane has worked in advertising as a creative director for more than thirty years. His style is inspired by comic artists like R. Crumb and James Jean, and by `MAD...

Inspiring sketchbook 21 août 2014
Par Parka - Publié sur
Format: Relié
As someone who likes to sketch, I always find it inspiring to look at other people's sketchbooks. That's because you understand how much work goes into making those sketches, especially if they are done outdoors, in all sorts of conditions.

Tommy Kane has worked as a creative director in advertising for over 30 years. And he's an avid sketcher. I've been following his blog, sketches and adventures for quite a while now. It's great to see that he has finally released his sketches in book form.

An Excuse to Draw collects 8 years worth of sketches. The book's a 216-page hardcover. Many sketches are printed full page which enables you to read his notes. On selected pages, he also talk about his experiences while sketching abroad.

The sketches included are those he drew while traveling to different countries and cities. Morocco, Lebanon, Barcelona, Paris, Vienna, Prague, Beijing, Tokyo, Cambodia, Vietnam, Sydney, the different states in USA and more.

He has a nice style characterised by bold uniform ink lines and coloured by either watercolours or coloured pencils. He works with sketchbooks and also on larger paper.

The drawings are in detail and captures a scene from the places he has been to. I find it charming to go through the drawings, reading about his hand written notes about things that happen while he was sketching.

The introduction of the book is quite personal and moving. The foreword written by Michelangelo (yes that one, I thought he was dead too) is quite funny.

It's a wonderful book. One of my 2014 favourite artbooks. For the price of the book, you get this amount of work, I think it's terrific value.

Highly recommended.

An Amazing Art book full of story and surprise 19 février 2014
Par Drew L. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I just received an advance copy of Tommy Kane's "An Excuse to Draw" and color me impressed. The sheer amount of sketches and accompanying stories are fantastic. Tommy's ability to capture the essence of the locations and situations in which he finds himself is incredible. Through his travels around the world as a pre-eminent Creative Director in the advertising world, to his personal trips with his wife and friends, Tommy invites the reader to join in and see the world through his eyes. Full of his unique style and sharp wit, this is an Art book of the highest caliber; I look forward to discovering something new every time I open it. Super high quality paper, printing and binding. Get this book. You will not be disappointed.

A wonderful tour of the world 15 août 2014
Par TM - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Tommy Kane's book features his travel drawings. There are pages of amazingly detailed full color drawings and other pages that present a series of excerpts from his sketchbooks. His artwork is so fun to look at, it inspires you to go out and look at the world with a fresh perspective. I have read the whole thing and I like to go back to my favorites to see new details every time. My only complaint is that some of the pages have very small writing, but the writing is really a second to the drawings.

If you enjoy Tommy Kane's work 9 octobre 2014
Par V. Lewis - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book is a veritable feast of drawings. With the exception of a few pages with text introduction, it is a buffet of artwork. Page after page of lovely, whimsical drawings. The author's commentaries which are part of the drawings shows his wry humor and gives a travel journal feel to the book. If you enjoy Tommy Kane's work, you will love this collection.
