Everyday Matters By Danny Gregory

Wednesday, October 27, 2010 4 Comments A+ a-

After Danny's wife Patti, suffered an accident leaving her wheelchair bound- Danny turned to his journal. Here he taught himself to draw and find the beauty and colour in all of life's simplicities. Everyday Matters is Danny Gregory's first memoir.

The kitchen cabinet, suddenly becomes more interesting.

New York booths- Love it! Danny finds the excellence in the 'somewhat' mundane.

I want all my travel journals to resemble this now!

There is always something to draw, even if you think there is nothing- look in front of you.
Love the plate and fork picture.

Look an Aussie $20 note! I love illustrated products.

I will be reviewing Danny Gregory's other amazing books; An illustrated life and Everyday Matters in future posts. They all fit in my 'top 10 books of all time'!!

Danny Gregory's work has influenced me so much, that I decided to take up my journaling again.I have journals way back from childhood, through High School to the end of University.
Here is one of my current pages from my 'illustrated' journal.

This summer I read Danny Gregory's "The creative license". It's a very good reading for people interested in drawing :)

Silvia- Yes I think anyone who is looking for a read about the freedom of expressing your creativity should read "The Creative License".
Thanks for the comment :)
