112-page full-color 6" x 6.5" hardcover • $19.99
One hundred influences — one hundred portraits from The New York Times best selling author of Life with Mr. Dangerous and Mother, Come Home.
Culled from cartoonist Paul Hornschemeier's drawing blog, The Daily Forlorn (one of Tumblr's featured illustration blogs), Artists Authors Thinkers Directors is as stylistically varied as the subjects it explores. A scrawled, single line drawing of Lenny Bruce, a triangular Heisenberg... A stippled Stanley Kubrick, a bubbly Billy Wilder... Each turn of the page offers a new take on a familiar face.
In the afterword, Hornschemeier includes brief notes on each portrait and that creator's particular work or insight that spoke specifically to him. And in that specificity, much of what is universally affecting in each creator shines through.
