Book Review: 4:00 AM

4:00 AM by Jose Lopez

I picked up this sketchbook from Jose Lopez at San Diego Comic Con 2009. He's a character designer who draws everything from stylised comic book heroes to cute animals. This sketchbook has full colour illustrations as well as rough sketches. There's also a few panels of this upcoming book Mariachi Samurai Volume 2 which is coming out later this year.

You can see more of his work on his blog at as well as find out why the book is titled 4:00 AM.

This 56-page book is available for purchase at his online store and Brand Studio Press store.
