Capturing Life In A Single Image
Tommy Lee Edwards, a friend of ours and an exceptional artist, has just published a new art book, Analog, and here’s some details on it…
“There’s a certain level of freedom when painting a private commission from the privacy of your own studio. A particular immediacy is built into sketches done behind the table throughout a convention appearance, or during a late-night session in the hotel room.” As the drawings and paintings in this book were typically done for fans of the artist, there was no intense need to please a committee of studio execs, an editor, an art director, an actor’s agent, or an advertising sponsor. It’s all about the process and love of capturing a story or character in a single image. Speaking of process, this book provides a rare step-by-step look at how Tommy Lee Edwards uses colour, value, line, and various analog mediums to approach a finished composition. www.TommyLeeEdwards.com

The 84-page book showcases private commissions I’ve done in the studio and on the road with traditional media. There’s a unique emphasis on the “making of” the drawings & paintings, featuring work-in-progress photos and more.
