Street Sketchbook takes a peek into the creative minds of over 60 street artists. These are not the street art you see on the walls, these are their doobles and ideas.

Each artist has a short introduction where they talk about their inspiration, how they started out and why they create art. With 60 artists, there are some pretty interesting stories, like how Elph wanted to be a bank robber in 1989 but took up graffiti instead.

This is where the real art is. I open this one every few months for ideas and inspiration. The artwork by almost all of the people in this book is amazing. Truly inspired.
Really fun and inspiring book to look through! Street Sketchbook holds a diverse collection of street artists, whom all display raw, unique styles of arting.
The cover of the copy I bought was different but I'm assuming it's the same book. Really cool stuff! Ugh... I can add art books, right?
One of my favorite books of all time. Must own for any illustrator. Many, many kinds of artworks.
Gorgeous drawings... interesting information. Beautiful book to keep around for inspiration.
i think maybe i think i like graffiti style art more than i actually do.
