Passion for Life-Stephen Silver!



I highly recommend "Passion for Life", Stephen Silver's latest book. Silver's new book gives insight into his philosophies in life drawing and life itself. With over 200 figure drawings in many different styles and techniques, Passion for Life will inspire and give you a look into the art of life drawing with a whole new perspective never seen before. Passion for life, and all it contains is an insightful book, not just for the drawings, but the message it sends. The quotes, and inspirational thoughts, are not just for artists, but for anyone who aspires to be happy, content and productive.
It is available on Silver's website at silvertoons.com
12" x 9" 200 pg Full Color Hardcover Book
$40.00 – Signed w/original sketch

Also, another great book to pick up for inspiration is Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera's latest book,Lifedrawing.




Well, I'm just now getting back into my studio . . . . I've been traveling around quite a bit this summer and now it's time to get back into the swing of things. There's a lot of drawings and paintings in the mix!

I just got back from Fan Expo in Toronto and had a blast hanging out with my Imaginism friends as well as many others from all over the globe, it was like a family reunion! My good friend Marco Bucci invited Nathan and I to stay at his house for the week! It was great hanging out. Marco and I managed to get out early one morning for a quick plein aire sketch.





This was my take on our scene . . . about a 45 min oil sketch. I haven't done a plein aire in about a year, so I felt a bit rusty to say the least. It was a great time, ducks and geese all around us and to top it off, I broke in my new shoes by stepping in a few piles of duck poo . . . ahhhhhh, the things that come along with painting outdoors! Thanks for painting with me Marco!





I had a great time hanging out with artist David Colman at Fan Expo. David's work is amazing and he's an awesome guy too, turns out we have a lot in common too!




David and I thought we'd sell more books at the con if we took our shirts off! Well, it sort of worked . . . lets just say we ended up acquiring a lot of dollar bills and Canadian Loonies!




On our way home my pal Nathan and I stopped off at Niagara Falls! All in all, a great trip . . . now it's time to get back to the grind!

Glad to hear you had a successful trip! I'll have to try to get up to FanExpo... maybe this next coming year... Like the plein aire. Never actually did that, would be cool to try!

That sure was a good weekend man! And it was a nice change to have someone to talk painting with. I don't really ever get to do that. I'm always up for a possible plein air trip too. Take care man!

I'm just in awe of the scenery. I'm so sick of Arizona, but I seemed to have inadvertently put down roots.

Hey Jason, it was great meeting and hanging out with you and Nathan on Saturday. It was a good night. Highlights of the evening had to be your passionate speech "I'ld clean his brushes" and Nates "you stole my tools! Hiyyyyaaah" story. It was a good night of UFC fights too. I'm looking forward to checking out your DVD and book. Thanks for the sketch. Say hi to Nate for me and maybe I'll see you guys again next year.
