Artists and Travelers at Work

Apparently author and artist Danny Gregory has a new book out: An Illustrated Journey: Inspiration From the Private Art Journals of Traveling Artists, Illustrators and Designers, and as such, is doing a series of video interviews with each of the contributors. I'm finding them absolutely fascinating.

Many of the challenges and benefits they encounter from sketching while traveling match up to those I encounter while blogging and photographing our trips. And of course, they are filled with inspiration, be it drawing, travel or just creative ideas in general. Definitely worth taking some time to watch. If nothing else, it's nice to see a smart way of marketing a new book in action.

I saw the first video on Urban Sketches, a blog/project that I'm really loving. I'll have more to say on that site soon, I hope, as it's a truly wonderful resource.

Tell me after watching the above videos you don't have the urge to toss some pencils and note cards in your bag with the plan to make some art on your next trip?
