Item description for The Daily Zoo: Keeping the Doctor at Bay with a Drawing a Day by Chris Ayers & J. J. Abrams...

In the spring of 2005 Chris Ayers was busy working as a concept artist in the Hollywood film industry. That came to a crashing halt when he was diagnosed with leukemia on April first. After a year-long period of treatment and recovery he started a sketchbook called The Daily Zoo on the anniversary of his diagnosis. Over the next 365 days he would draw one animal each day, challenging both his self-discipline and imagination. Most importantly it would allow him the focused opportunity to celebrate the gift of each healthy day. The pages of The Daily Zoo: Volume One are chock-filled with 365 distinct critters, ranging from curious pandas to sinister hyenas, athletic aardvarks to zealous zebras, and his choice of artistic styles are as diverse as his subject matter. Alongside the images Ayers, whose big screen credits include Men in Black II, X-Men 3, and the Alien vs. Predator films, ties in commentary about his cancer experience, the sources of his artistic inspiration and his creative methods. Whether you're a beginning artist or a seasoned pro, this book will leave you inspired to grab the nearest pencil, pen, brush or crayon and start drawing!

In the Spring of 2005 Chris Ayers was diagnosed with leukemia, a type of blood cancer. One year later he started a sketchbook and drew one animal each day for a year to aid in his healing process. Though it was begun as purely a personal project for his own enjoyment and therapy, he has since published the first two year's worth of sketches along with reflections on his cancer experience, commentary on his creative process and a wealth of information on animals in "The Daily Zoo: Keeping the Doctor at Bay with a Drawing a Day" (2008) and "The Daily Zoo Year Two - Still Keeping the Doctor at Bay with a Drawing a Day" (2009).
