R. Crumb, Chris Ware, James Kochalka, are just a few artists who illustrate their lives in journals, and whose work can now be viewed in the book, An Illustrated Life–Drawing Inspiration from the Private Sketchbooks of Artists, Illustrators, and Designers (compiled/edited by Danny Gregory). 

In all, over 40 artists contributed to this collection.  Gregory writes, “There are people in this book whose lives have been transformed by the simple act of drawing their breakfast in a book, who have seen their world for the first time by sketching it on a page”. (An Illustrated Life, p. 3).  Gregory has also published Everyday Matters, The Creative License, Hello World–A Life In Ham Radio, Change Your Underwear Twice a Week–Lessons from the Age of Classroom Filmstrips, and more.
