Item description for LA/SF: A Sketchbook from California by Scott Robertson Christian Schellewald...

"You find yourself drifting when you become aware of the arrangement of trees behind a freeway sound barrier, when you wait for the container ship to disappear beyond the horizon, when you sit and listen to the ambient noise of distant traffic, unconcerned that most people would consider this a waste of time."

From the moments described above, emerges a captivating sketchbook from Christian Schellewald. Art Director Schellewald has taken time away from the world of entertainment design to create vignettes that capture his everyday observations of living in California, specifically Los Angeles and San Francisco. When viewing such delicate yet compelling sketches, one feels as though Schellewald's memories are his or her own traveling between these two cities through his eyes and artwork.

Reviews - What do customers think about LA/SF: A Sketchbook from California?

Amazing sketch book  Jun 21, 2006
In the flood of published sketch and artists books, this one stands as a real valuable and personal contribution. The artwork is loose, atmospheric and truthful in its portrayal of the real world, not the artificially contrived and prettyfied world of other so-called artists. Christian's artwork in the film production of "The Road to EL Dorado" or "Over the Hedge" is fantastic. Here we have a much looser version of the artist at work.

It is what is missing that forces me to take one star of the review. It doesn't explain the circumstances and media in which this sketches were made. The notes in each sketch are great to convey the sense of a diary but techniques and media are a mistery and for those who would like to learn something about the making of the artwork, there is not even a footnote. I think a technical prologue or epilogue would have rounded up a great book.
