It is so easy nowadays to get inspired by artist’s work on social media and watch the endless stream of tutorials on YouTube, Skillshare, and other cool websites.
But what’s better than one print or looking at an art piece through the glass?
That’s right, ART BOOKS!
There is something magical about holding a book full of beautiful pieces, flipping through the pages, again and again, to discover something new every time you look at them!
And there is something stunning about digital work when it finally translates onto a piece of paper.
And that is what the book “The Sketchbook of Loish: Art in Progress” is for me – inspiration, education, and beauty.
Apart from this blog post, I also recorded a video “The Sketchbook Of Loish: Art In Progress (Unboxing And Flip Through)” (in which I rumble a lot), so you are welcome to check it out as well:

About The Book
This is the second book by Loish, her first one is “The Art Of Loish: A Look Behind The Scenes” in which she collected a lot of her finished digital work.
This second book is almost a continuation of the first one!
As Loish was collecting artworks for her first book – she came across a lot of sketches and unfinished work that she would love to share. Then the idea for the second book was born.
“The Sketchbook Of Loish: Art In Progress” is filled with sketches and work-in-progress art.
The book was actually launched in a Kickstarter campaign in September 2017. (And the first book was launched in August 2015 on Kickstarter as well).

Why Kickstart a Book In The Future?
There are two big reasons why you should kickstart a book in the future (like I did with this one):
- Supporting the artists you admire.
If you had the chance to watch the video I embedded for you at the top – you already know that I have received a lot of freebies together with this book!
- Coloring Book by Loish;
- Deck of Cards;
These are not available anymore as freebies when you purchase the book, but you can buy them separately.
For example, you can find some of her stickers at Society6.
Browse Amazon’s Art Books collection that I currate, and get this or many other books available!
This way you support the artists you love, and have a beautiful piece of art to hold on to and look at 🙂
