Sketchy Stories The Sketchbook Art of Kerby Rosanes

Disclaimer:   I was given a copy of this book for the purpose of review.  I was not paid in anyway to write this review.  All opinions are my own
They say a picture is worth 1000 words.  After looking through Sketchy Stories I can safely say that is so true!
Each page tells its own story.  I like that as I flip through the pages some make me smile, some are very thought inspiring and some just make me go "HUH?" but in a good way!
This Sketchbook is like no other book on my shelf and it seems that when people come to my house they are drawn to that one :)
World-renowned artist and author Kerby Rosanes (Never Quit Drawing, Animorphia, Imagimorphia) specializes in black ink doodles and sketches, and at the age of 23, he quit his desk job as a graphic designer to pursue his art full time.

Now fans can glimpse the personal sketchbook of Kerby Rosanes with Sketchy Stories, a beautiful facsimile reproduction of his original sketchbook, loaded with secret doodles, elaborate sketches, and whimsical lines and detailed patterns.

Not only is this Sketchbook fun to look at, but my son and I both like to draw and we found it very inspiring!
I know I will never be as good as Kerby Rosanes, but it is nice to pretend :)
