ARTISTS AUTHORS THINKERS DIRECTORS. {Cover title: Artists Authors Thinkers Directors: Paul Hornschemeier -- One Hundred Influences, One Hundred Portraits.} Fantagraphics Books, Inc., Seattle, 2013. Distributed by W.W. Norton & Company, Inc., New York. 114 pp. with 100 col. ills. 15 x 14 cm. ISBN 9781606996980 In English.
Publisher's description: A self-portrait through one hundred portraits, Artists Authors Thinkers Directors explores cartoonist Paul Hornschemeier's sketchbook renderings of those who shaped his (and many others') artistic views. Culled from his drawing blog -- The Daily Forlorn, now one of Tumblr's featured illustration blogs, adding thousands of new followers every week -- these portraits are as stylistically varied as the subjects they portray. A scrawled, single line drawing of Lenny Bruce shares space with a triangular Werner Heisenberg. A monochromatic, stippled Stanley Kubrick stares intently at a muppetheaded Frank Oz. Each turn of the page offers a new take on a familiar face. In the afterword, Hornschemeier includes brief notes on each portrait and that creator's particular work or insight that spoke specifically to him.
