Skottie Young Launches New Sketchbook ‘Daily Grind’, Limited to 1000 Copies

Cartoonist Skottie Young, best known currently for his variant ‘Marvel Baby’ covers along with his work writing and drawing ‘Rocket Raccoon’ (to say nothing of his long-term run illustrating ‘The Wizard of Oz’ books with Eric Shanower) has today put a new sketchbook up for sale at his site.


‘Daily Grind’ will be limited to 1000 copies, and collects together daily sketches the artist does to warm up before turning to his published work. If you follow him on Twitter or Tumblr you’ll be well aware of these sketches – they take the form of new characters, animals, sight gags, established characters, and whatever else comes to mind. He’s able to effortlessly shift his style so it remains recognisably his own, but offers all-ages silliness one page and darker material on the next.

He’s one of the most prolific and admired cartoonists of this generation of comics, and his new sketchbook is $30. Frankly, I’d be amazed if you’ve even bothered to read this final paragraph. Just head to his store already!
