Christmas came early...

I thought I would make an announcement, for two artists highly commended in their work and throughout these blogs, and both people who I admire very much...

Jose Lopez has released his first sketchbook 'Mariachi Samurai Vol:1' to the tune of a limited 1,000 copies (so hurry everyone!)

I recently recieved my copy and it is worth every penny, and a great inspiration to me.

For more information on Jose and how to get your own copy of his book, then visit his blog here:

...Another great artist and well known to many of us is Uwe HeidSchoetter, a very talented German guy who has finally immortalised his girl sketches in a new book, coming soon, entitled, 'Augenblick'. I personally can't wait! ...But you have to be quick, there's a 'very' limited run of 150 numbered and signed, so be quick! Details can be found at Uwe's blog here:

As for me, I have nothing to show yet, sorry guys...I'm snowed under at work, but soon as I have time then I'll be posting some new stuff :)

Hi Mark!

Thanks for your kind comments on our blog "Die Bilderwumme". The translation means something like "Picture Gun". So every day we try to shoot out a new picture. (Does that make sense?) Hope you'll visit us again!

I'm sure Uwe will be delighted for your kind comments on his sketchbook. I'll tell him. I already saw the first test-print and it looked great!

I subscribed your blog in Thunderbird. So we'll keep an eye on you ;-)

The cover is excellent yeh, probably one of my favourite pieces of recent times. The book is about 85% sketch book insights, and a few colour sketches thrown in for good measure ;)...a great little coffee table book full of go bag it!

Mr. Lopez:

...Blimey, I didn't expect to see you here! Great to hear from you :D ...I'm very touched you like my stuff :)...Hope to see you again soon, and hope the book does well... :)

Yo, Mark, thanks for stopping by earlier. You have a really cool gallery here showcasing a lot of variety. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on you.
