Présentation de l'éditeur

Travel + Sketching = Inspiration

When we travel, we don't want to follow the same itinerary as everyone who's come before us. We want to feel like explorers, adventurers in undiscovered territory. And that's exactly what sketching can bring to the travel experience.

An Illustrated Journey captures the world through the eyes of 40 talented artists, illustrators and designers. You'll experience the wonder of seeing familiar sights through a fresh lens but, more important, you'll be inspired to set pen to paper and capture your own vistas.

The really wonderful thing about a sketchbook is that it can be totally private. You don't have to have an ounce of talent to enjoy learning how to really see what's in front of you. But lucky for us, the sketchbooks captured here are lovely, creative, intimate windows into each artist's mind.

So, whether you're just returning to the art of drawing, abandoned by most of us after childhood, or you're looking for inspiration to take your illustration work in a new direction, An Illustrated Journey will take you on a wonderful trip of the imagination. All you need to pack are a pencil and a piece of paper.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sketches have the charm 18 février 2013
Par Parka - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
An Illustrated Journey is a delightful collection of travel sketches from 40 contributors all over the world. They draw on location, they record their thoughts, and they share their stories in this book. The presentation style is similar to Danny Gregory's previous book An Illustrated Life, a book that I still refer to regularly.

This book is somewhat similar to The Art of Urban Sketching. The sketches are all done on location. In this book however, the focus is on the contributors themselves and their thoughts on places and sketching while traveling. The writeup is longer with more depth and you really get to feel their love for sketching.

I really enjoy looking at the beautiful sketches and reading the scribbled notes on the pages. Sketches have the charm and personalities that can't be found from photographs. I guess that's why I love sketchbooks so much.

This is an inspiring sketchbook for travel and art lovers. It's definitely one of my favourite books for 2013.

Highly recommended.

I wanted to recommend a few more travel related sketchbooks but realize that there are too many. So instead, I'll post a link to the list on my blog in the comments section below.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A rich treasury of travel sketches and personal profiles 15 mars 2013
Par Tina K. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Danny Gregory's eagerly awaited book, An Illustrated Journey: Inspiration from the Private Art Journals of Traveling Artists, Illustrators and Designers, came out a few weeks ago, and after all the anticipation, it does not disappoint. The book is a rich treasury of travel sketches and personal profiles of many inspiring artists.

Very similar in format to Gregory's 2008 book, An Illustrated Life: Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artists, Illustrators and Designers, his latest book profiles 43 travel journal keepers from many countries. Each artist has written a first-person account of his or her background in art and travel, how travel sketching is inspired, and techniques and tools used. Photos of some artists are included, showing them sketching on location. It is particularly illuminating to see the common threads among nearly all the artists - that drawing what they see while traveling enriches their travel experiences, bridges gaps in understanding about other cultures, and evokes memories like no photographs can. It's clear that sketching and traveling have become integrated creative processes for these artists: Seeing new places motivates drawing, and drawing motivates observing more carefully the new places they experience.

The meat of the book is a beautiful collection of large, full-color reproductions of art from the artists' travel sketchbooks. These unique, spontaneous views of the world make me want to hop on a plane right now to fill my own sketchbook with the places I visit.

Most of the artists included - Miguel "Freekhand" Herranz, Nina Johansson, Cathy Johnson, Tommy Kane, Lapin, Veronica Lawlor and Liz Steel, to name a few - are well-known in the blogosphere of the urban sketching/on-location drawing community. A few are less-known discoveries with fresh, surprising perspectives.

In fact, if I have any complaints about this beautiful book, it is a tiny one: I wish it had included more travelers who are not professional artists, illustrators or designers, and who are perhaps less well-known. Almost every participant either has an art degree or makes a living using their artistic skills. I have seen online the amazing on-location sketches of so many people who work at "regular" jobs and do not have any kind of art background. I would have loved to see more of them included. Better yet, a whole volume devoted to the on-location work of non-professional artists would be equally inspiring as this one. How about it, Danny?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Such a visual treat 4 avril 2013
Par S. Warfield - Publié sur Amazon.com

I've had this book for about a week now, and I've been going over and over the drawings of the 40 artists/contributors in the book. Rather than just take delight and inspiration in the sketches, the text is of great value and interest, too. It can be read like any other book and the art consumed for hours.

The contributors, including Danny Gregory, have traveled all over the world and have seen it with new eyes as they've gone from place to place and have drawn and painted people, buildings, foods, whatever they've seen that interested them as a subject. It's a feast for the eyes.

Styles are as diverse as the artists are in number. I enjoyed seeing the difference in how people see the world and also their differences in the supplies they use. One man said he uses only the cheapest sketch books and the same two ballpoint pens to sketch with, and they're the cheap kind that are found in hotel rooms. Others use more expensive materials but the results are the same. Beautiful drawings no matter what they're done with.

It is enjoyable to read what is written near or on some of the sketches in the journal pages and some of them are quite funny. Some are done as sketches in preparation for paintings, and others are to remind the artist of the time and feelings of that particular place. Danny Gregory's An Illustrated Life: Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artists, Illustrators and Designers is as good as this one, An Illustrated Journey: Inspiration From the Private Art Journals of Traveling Artists, Illustrators and Designers and is just as interesting to read and to dive headfirst into the artwork.

Both of these books are very inspirational for anyone who reads them. If you haven't picked up a sketchbook and pencil for a while, after you see this book, it's likely you will. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspirational! 20 mars 2013

Although I enjoyed the wonderful sketches by the numerous artists, I really enjoyed their comments even more. As an artist, I am inspired to try travel sketching... again. To hear the ups-&-downs of these artists as they got into sketching outdoors is encouraging to me as I work through my own ups-&-downs. I also like their comments on their sketching supplies. This book was wonderfully done with a good balance between artwork and stories, plus having a basic format of info from each artist which aids in comparison.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Another gift from Danny Gregory 7 mars 2014
Par Suzan Colon - Publié sur Amazon.com

Putting together examples from people who keep illustrated diaries, especially art from their travels, is a fantastic idea realized by Danny Gregory. First he gave us the gift of showing us his illustrated journals, and now these. It's a beautiful book and will make you want to bring a blank notebook and some pens along on your next trip, whether it's across the world or across the street to the coffee bar.
Just do yourself a favor: Get the real paper version of this book. My mistake was succumbing to the need for instant gratification and buying the Kindle version. You will want to see the details on some of these beautiful illustrations, you'll enlarge the art on the Kindle, it will pixilate and no amount of S'mores will console you. Trust me on this.
