I bought a new illustrative book a week ago. Really excited when I saw it on the book shelve in Kino. Every Matters by Danny Gregory
He is one of my favourite illustrator. Love reading his illustration journal. The everyday things that he sketched were common and simple. But I find it simply intriguing .
The flow of creative energy in those rough lines excite and inspire me.
Love those Pigeons. Reminded me of the big fat Pigeons that parade along Orchard road.
