New Book Collection: "Robert Crumb. Sketchbooks 1964–1982"

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 07, 2014
Taschen has released a fantastic six-volume set of R. Crumb's sketchbooks, based on the original hard-bound, slip-cased, seven-volume series released by the German publisher Zweitausendeins between 1981 and 1997. As Taschen notes, "Unlike the previous edition, which included every doodle ever made by the preeminent underground artist, our edition has been personally edited by the notoriously fastidious artist to include only what he considers his best work, reproduced directly from the original sketchbooks."

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 18, 2013
Originally published on January 4th, 2013: The great website Empty Kingdom found a good one in the sketchbook art of Estonian artist, Anton Vill. A great mix of both a lowbrow style and incredible craft, Vill's work reminds us of the sketchbook of one of the great animated movies you would find from European production company.

Stefan creates these fantastic, detailed, notebook-esque pencil drawings of various characters and a bit of dream scenarios around each's head. Simple, powerful, great work.
