A wise man once said, "Looking through an artist's sketchbook is like seeing that artist naked." With this brand-new series of hardcover books, Nerdcore is proud to undress some of pop art's most daring and original creators, beginning with Joe Ledbetter's Sketchbook. Like never before, fans will be welcomed into the creative process, warts and all. Each of the 184 pages in this volume was hand-selected by Mr. Ledbetter from various personal sketchbooks, dating back to 2003 when his now-iconic characters like Mr. Bunny were barely recognizable scribbles. You'll be treated to character design experiments for creatures that never were, doodles for vinyl toys that still aren't, concepts for paintings that already are, and plenty of surprise smudges just because we can. It's a new kind of artistic intimacy. Hardcover, b&w, all pencil sketches.
