Another interview of a sketchbook artist for the book, An Illustrated Journey. this one of Seattle's, Steven Reddy. He takes off from teaching in Seattle to go teach in China for 5 months. Really it was a ploy to sketch in a very foreign land. The good thing about this video is that it is split screen. It is a lot less disturbing to look at then the full frame of the person with a tiny Danny Gregory in the corner of the screen. I don't know, maybe people like disturbing but I assure you this one is not. Steve is a real details guy, so he gets into the nitty grtty of his drawing technique.
