Here's the product description I grabbed off Amazon:
The Black Frog’s first published sketchbook, Doodles, is a compilation of 200 original pencil doodles featuring teapots, monsters, silly robots, and other weird characters and concepts. Each was doodled in five minutes or less.
Igor-Alban Chevalier—a.k.a. The Black Frog—was born in Champagne, France in 1973. The only son of an antique dealer/art teacher, Chevalier grew up discovering the work of glorious comic book artists like Liberatore, Moebius, and Frank Miller. He spent four years as a creature designer at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop in London, and has designed for such films as Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and X-Men 3. He now freelances in Los Angeles as a visual effects art director.
It's really hard to review a sketchbook, especially if all it has are doodles. The doodles are all done in pencils. They are mainly on character designs and objects. The form is there — it's not abstract — so at least we know what's being drawn.
This book probably should appeal more if you actually know the artist.
Igor-Alban Chevalier has a website that's worth checking out. On it you'll find more of his work and his blog.
