The Artist Within

Ace photographer Greg Preston has a spectacular new book out: The Artist Within (from Dark Horse). It consists of compelling photographs of cartoonists and comics creators from around the world. If you’d like to see me pre-gray hair (and slightly thinner), I’m in there, too, standing in my element (amongst the battling dinosaur skeletons in the foyer of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County).

At only forty bucks this huge book is a great bargain. The photography and the concepts of each photo are all stunning! Sadly, many of the great creators featured in the book are no longer with us. Greg’s book is now an important historical and cultural document.
