Danny Gregory


Are you familiar with the work of Danny Gregory? Danny is a talented, self-taught artist who shares his wealth of creative insight through art journaling, as is evident in his website and throughout his many publications. His newest book, to be released in December, spotlights the private sketchbooks of artists, illustrators and designers. I am lucky enough to be able to be taking a seven week course with Danny entitled Everyday Matters: Illustrated Journaling as a Path to Creativity. Beginning this week, I will be posting after class to share my experiences. This feels like a great way to bring 2008 to a close! Images in this post by Danny Gregory.

I love Danny Gregory and his work. I bought Everyday Matters while browsing in a bookstore, and from there checked out his website/blog.

His blog was the first blog I ever saw, and through his blog I discovered tons of others and began blogging myself.

I can't wait for his new book.
