If you are a longtime reader of my blog you may remember my earlier post about Dan Lee, the much-loved and multi-talented Pixar character designer who died earlier this year after a long battle with cancer. Or perhaps you’ve heard of him from other sources, or seen his work in those wonderful “Art of” books. Even away from work he was an avid sketcher, banging out hundreds of drawings of people he had seen in the street or in cafes. So a group of his friends and family members have put together a book of Dan’s sketches titled “IN YOUR FACE” which will be launched later this month on the 25th of August at the Canvas Gallery Cafe, which was indeed the spot where many of the sketches themselves were done. You can read more about the upcoming book launch here.
Additionally, the next SKETCHCRAWL will be held in his honour on August 27th, the weekend following the book launch.
