Book Description

Dec 1 2006
Igor-Alban Chevalier - a.k.a. The Black Frog - was born in Champagne, France in 1973. The only son of an antique dealer/art teacher, Chevalier grew up discovering the work of glorious comic book artists like Liberatore, Moebius, and Frank Miller. He spent four years as a creature designer at Jim Henson's Creature Shop in London, and has designed for such films as "Harry Potter" and the "Sorcerer's Stone" and "X-Men 3". The Black Frog's first published sketchbook, "Doodles", is a compilation of 200 original pencil doodles featuring teapots, monsters, silly robots, and other weird characters and concepts. Each was doodled in five minutes or less.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rough gems from a really talented illustrator! June 9 2009
By Dan Boo
Format:Paperback
Although i've nerver heard about the "black frog" before, when i saw the video by parka, i knew i had to look at that. I'm not deceived.
But still, i don't suggest that little book for everyone- as the common people would only see doodles, the more experimented eye will see the raw energy, skill, style, fantasy and originality that overload this book. Fans of Claire wendling's "drawers" and Peter de Seve sketchbook will dig it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Appeals more if you know the artist March 1 2009
By Parka HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Length: 0:12 Mins
It's really hard to review a sketchbook, especially if all it has are doodles. The doodles are all done in pencils. They are mainly on character designs and objects. The form is there -- it's not abstract -- so at least we know what's being drawn.

This book probably should appeal more if you actually know the artist.

Igor-Alban Chevalier has a website that's worth checking out though. On it you'll find more of his work and his blog. His website address is dynamografika dot com.

There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.

This is a fun book, with one sketch per page to make you pay attention to the detail the artist takes.

I still enjoy flipping through and admiring this man's work!
