Inspiration! Portraits of Famous Artists and Their Quirks by James Gulliver Hancock

This is awesome.  Artist James Gulliver Hancock is publishing an amazing-looking art book called Artists, Writers, Thinkers, Dreamers: Portraits of 50 Famous Folks and All Their Weird Stuff. It features his fun and quirky drawings of famous artists (and, allegedly, writers, thinkers, and dreamers) complete with a bunch of quirky facts about them. My favourite is this one of Salvador Dali:

"I don't tale drugs. I am drugs." HA!  Aren't we all?

Somehow seeing all the random little doodads that went into all these amazing artists' lives makes me feel better about all the random doodads in my life. And it's nice to see that Salvador Dali had to do some commercial art work once and a while too.
