    Before I get into this book review, I just want to make it clear that I have a personal interest in this book and the artist behind it, Mr Phillip Butah.

    I have known Phillip for some time now in a professional and personal capacity. His work has always inspired me and I was all too happy and humbled to provide him with my opinions when he first opened the conversation about putting this book together. Also for our Blog readers, it’s worth noting that this book is not an out and out art book, it’s more of an illustrated book of autobiographical memoirs. I would therefore recommend it to both fans of Ed Sheeran’s music and fans of illustration and portraiture alike. Although much of the accompanying visuals are the work of artist Phillip Butah, there is also some varied and complimentary photography.

    I’d Love To Draw is out today in the UK! To celebrate Titan books have kindly sent over some rare photographs of the original book Andrew Loomis created.

    I’d Love To Draw was started by the late Andrew Loomis, who unfortunately died in 1959 before its completion. Held in the Loomis family archives for decades, the book’s existence was entirely unknown outside of the Loomis family – until now!

    Lovingly restored by a team of experts, including the globally-renowned and respected artist Alex Ross, Titan Books are finally publishing Loomis’ lost legacy. This facsimile edition finally completes the Loomis legacy at long last.

    We will have a full review of the book soon.

    I am by no means the first to write about this incredible book, but I recently ordered a couple for my son and niece, so I thought I’d now spread the word seeing as I now have them in my hands.

    The deal is this: for £18.99 (including free worldwide shipping might I add), you get a perfect bound, personalised children’s book with a story centred around your child’s name. Simply visit LostMy.Name and type in your child’s name and then select ‘boy’ or ‘girl’. You can preview the whole book online, which is great. The entire website experience is great.

    These guys seem to have gotten everything right, from the story by David Cadji-Newby to the truly beautiful and stylish illustrations by Pedro Serapicos. The books are perfect bound on some nice matt stock, too. I’ll also add that the customer service was really helpful (I shamefully mis-spelled my niece’s name, but they were very friendly put it right for me).

    I cannot recommend this enough; it’ll make the perfect gift and for a price that doesn’t break the bank.

    Parisian Julien Bizat is a talented former Gobelins student currently plying his trade in feature length animation amongst other things. He is a talented illustrator, animator and character designer that I’ve admired for a few years now, so it was about time I shared. There is a lot of brilliant work to be found on his blog, from development work to finished artwork. Enjoy!
