Oh My Goodness! Is this man not talented???? 36 years of journals. I'm totally impressed. I so want to do this, but I can't stick with the drawing every day. There is just something in me that bucks at having to adhere to a schedule even tho' I know that drawing/observation skills improve exponentially when one draws in pen/ink every day. I'm doing the 75 drawings in 75 days challenge put on by Brenda Swenson. Her journals are outstanding too. But I do struggle with that commitment.
Thanks for sharing this with us. I'll support him on KickStart and hope he gets his memoir published soon.

Wow, in my dreams I can draw like that , then I pick up a pencil and it doesn't happen. This is why I like patterns, collage and bright color, I can do that. Enjoy and thanks for sharing.

oh thanks MaryAnn.....my first thought, was going back to 1998 and sitting with my 10 & 9 year sons reading, THE WAY THINGS WORK illustrated by David Macaulay, written by Neil Ardley.....remember that the three teenagers, 18, 16 & 15 came over to sit and look at this amazing book with us. But Steven B.'s 21st century reflection of his 35 years of journals will be even more illuminating and a joy to read over and over again.......
love that he drives up & down streets....sits in the front yards and draws....and paints.....and thinks and does it all over again again...

Thank you for sharing this man's amazing talent - he is so good, and seems really humble and down to earth too :-) Very inspirational - I know your posting this will help his Kickstarter campaign too!

Forget this guy coming to my house to draw. I want to go his house and go through those shelves full of sketchbooks. Imagine 35 years of sketchbooks to rummage through! Sigh...

I think, if you don't already know it, that you would adore the Urban Sketchers web site. There's a brilliant artist called Tommy Kane who draws in the same style as Steve Reddy. So cool, so seemingly relaxed and easy, so clever. (He has a blog too).
I've followed the Urban Sketchers for ages. Anyone can contribute. Your drawings would look great on there.
I want one of those Where Was I books! Thanks for the info.

I would love to take a day and go through your sketchbooks! Your art is amazing!
I can't wait for your kickstarter!

Thanks for sharing. I'm going straight over to kickstarter. Then I'm grabbing pen and paper. How can you not want to draw after seeing that?

I had discovered him a couple of months ago when Danny Gregory posted the Kickstarter and this video on his Facebook page. I, too, was amazed and without too much more ado, kicked in. cuz I want that book! Especially meaningful to those of us who live in the area. I recognize so many places, just in the small sampling provided.
When are you doing your book? :)
