5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and random 3 July 2009
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Length: 0:21 Mins
Street Sketchbook takes a peek into the creative minds of over 60 street artists. These are not the street art you see on the walls, these are their doobles and ideas.

Each artist has a short introduction where they talk about their inspiration, how they started out and why they create art. With 60 artists, there are some pretty interesting stories, like how Elph wanted to be a bank robber in 1989 but took up graffiti instead.

On the scanned pages, we have pencil sketches, ink, highlighters, watercolour, collage. Additionally, there are also a couple of photos of the graffiti wall art. Anything goes in this book.

It's a great sketchbook for anyone looking for a bit of inspiration.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invigorating and inspiring 20 Aug 2008
By Iconophoric - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Highly recommended to anyone who wants to see the sketchbook roots of some of the most robustly energetic public art around. If you've ever been excited by any artist's sketchbook - from Leonardo to R. Crumb -- this belongs in your collection. The format is nice too: The book's blunted page corners and cover invites browsing and leaving it laying around for friends, like a children's book for adults. (As an aside, I really wish the guy who didn't get his copy delivered hadn't given the book such a low rating. It has unfairly skewed the rating of this gem down, and it's a solid five if there ever was one.)

An all-good look at art worthy of your attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great insight into modern art cultures 12 Mar 2008
By Austin Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
There are dozens of interesting and brilliant artists in this book and the author does a terrific job of picking out shots that illustrate their processes and style. I'd recommend this book strongly because of the rarity of the pictures taken directly from artist's most personal and raw medium.

I teach high school art and this book is a favorite in art class especially for those boys that don't feel they are very artistic.

This book is awesome! Best compilation of pictures ever. A lot of graphics with just enough info, but not too much like a lot of other art books. :)
