Danny's story is inspiring and encouraging to those with art in their hearts,
who might not think they can do it. Great crisis turns into strength and blessing story.

EVERYDAY MATTERS is never far from me, and always a source of inspiration. Danny's writing is engaging and funny and sad and wonderful, and never solipsistic or maudlin -- it's a really generous book, actually, and affecting in unexpected ways. I've been telling everyone I know, and then giving them copies. This book should be read by anyone going through a transition in their life, by every artist, by everyone who needs a reminder to stop and observe and be. Incredible.

I have always wanted to start a creative journal but never knew where to start. Browsing through Amazon I found 'Every Day Matters'. Reading all the positive reviews I HAD to buy it. I even bought one for my sister for Christmas. While the book was great, it didn't really live up to my expectations. The book seemed a bit lacking. There could have been more... I don't know, something. The first couple pages hooked me in and gave me a false sense of what was to come. When the book was done I was left saying "That's it?"
The book did accomplish what I got it for though, and that was to inspire me to do something like this of my own.

I was disappointed in this book. Although the author's story is touching, the book itself is not attractive at all and does not personally inspire me at all. I'm actually having trouble even finishing it. I would not purchase this book had I not bought it blind.

If you want to be inspired to draw, or to write, or to live more fully, or best of all to do all three simultaneously, (and if you only have 60 minutes to move closer to your goals)- Everyday Matters is a must read. It's real, charming, witty, whimsical, and teaches art and life lessons that can be applied BY ANYONE. For all those who say "but I can't draw" and even more for those who say "but what shall I draw" this has some answers to the first question and many to the second. It's hard for me to say whether Danny is a better artist, writer, or philosopher. Fortunately we get all three in this slim volume. I can't wait for his next book.

Format: Hardcover
Everyday Matters is such a special, intimate, lovely book, it's hard to know where to begin singing its praises. To open the book is to steal a look inside the sketchbook (a.k.a. the heart and mind) of a man who has just realized that drawing might help him see everything more clearly -- including seeing his way into a whole new life, one in which his wife is in a wheelchair. And that man happens to live in and draw pictures of New York City, which he adores.
Besides the delights of Gregory's words and images -- which are sometimes funny, and other times poignant -- the book also serves as a nearly overwhelming incentive to pick up a pen and draw. And by drawing, to see objects again for the first time. If by publishing the book Gregory wished to remind people to look at the world around them with fresh, hungry, sensitive hearts and eyes, he has succeeded with this reader.

Format: Hardcover
The drawings of everyday objects are delightful and lively, and the story that winds around the images is touching and uplifting. This is a book that I share with my high school students to show them ways that they can use drawing and journaling to help work through those curves and dips that life deals out to us.

I loved every moment I spent with this book, from the gorgeous cover to the heartfelt drawings and journal entries throughout. Well done, Danny Gregory. Not only can you draw, you have inspired another to do the same.
