"The idea may be derived from anything really - a flash of sunlight, the tilt of a head, a glass on the table...but the sketch is where it all begins, the point where inspiration meets artist. Gloriously free of the need to get it "right," the sketch is where possibilities are explored, compositions are found, and visions come to life.
A brilliant follow-up to the first Sketchbook Confidential, this book grants you access to 38 of art's most creative minds via their sketchbooks. Whether created in studios, subways or the middle of a farmyard, these sketches represent art in its raw form. Up until now, this work has been tucked inside drawers or on studio bookshelves. Now the artists lay it out for all to see, along with intimate musings on the art of sketching and how it helps them commune with a subject, find their path to a finished piece or discover even greater rewards in the journey itself."

"In his introduction, Campos (1,000 Ideas for Graffiti and Street Art ) argues that manga ought to be considered a philosophy more than a genre, and the book's format reflects this broad view.
This inspirational reference presents short interviews with and sample artwork from 100 different artists from Japan and around the world who either work in manga formats themselves or have been strongly influenced by manga art. Campos includes an unusual variety of styles via the 1000 illustrations, which flow well in dynamic layouts. Because the interviews discuss creativity generally, this title can be helpful to many types of readers."
