Great post, big fan of what you're doing - what a roster of talent!

Gonna put an order together soon, as soon as i make up my mind what to get!

Quick question (a little unrelated to blog post) are there any Sean Galloway sketchbooks left in the world? And if not, will there be a re-print? I just wanted to check as postage out to Scotland is a monster, so trying to bulk order.

Cheers, hope to hear back from you.

Xee

Always good to discover another artist-these drawings are solid & powerful. Looks like he may have influenced the design of Disney's JOHN HENRY short?

Process Junkie said...

Good point, I really liked the John Henry short, the film does remind me of White's bold charcoal drawings, intentional or not.

Thank you for giving respect to Charles White. he was one of the greatest artists this country ever produced, and he's a great influence to many artists to this day; especially us black artists!
