Peter DeSeve

Time to catch up on some new additions to the Inkwell Studios library, including this one: "A Sketchy Past- The Art of Peter DeSeve," from Akileos Books. DeSeve has been creating brilliant editorial illustration for years, including New Yorker covers, children's books and theatre posters. More recently, he's been doing concept and character art for animated features. Those creatures from "Ice Age" are his, although I maintain there's more life and personality- more animation-  in DeSeve's loose pencil and watercolor sketches than in the CGI versions on the screen. We saw some of his work on display at the Society of Illustrators in New York. Sublime.
