Book Review: Drawing Life

Drawing Life

Javier Mariscal is a Valencian Spanish artist and designer, although he thinks of himself more of a draw-er. His work has spanned a wide range of mediums, ranging from painting and sculpture to interior design and landscaping.

This 300-page hardcover book is a collection of the various design jobs done in the twenty years of the life of Estudio Mariscal, his design studio. It includes a lot of sketches, scribbles and colourful illustrations. His style is sketchy, lively, cartoony and child-like.

The accompanying commentary is written by Mariscal himself. He looks back at his work, the various commissions, and his personal life.

The book's published by Phaidon and it's really well bind with matte paper pages. I like the cover design.

It's a great book for those who love his style.
