Sasek’s D.C.

I enjoyed posting Sasek’s illustrated book to Rome last week, and Bill Peckmann followed the cue of his sending me scans of “This is D.C.“, the artist’s follow-up to the U.S. Capital. I hope you enjoy, because I have “This is NY” developing sitting in the wings. look forward to it.

    Stunning! I like the Ronald Searle influence present in some of these drawings.

    I love M. Sasek. He was a great illustrator who originally started out in architecture, hence the details in all the buildings for city spreads in all his books. I have every one of his “This Is…” series and I’m constantly amazed by them. I’ll just sit and browse them one by one.

    A couple of things:

    I once posted about “This Is Cape Canaveral” on my blog several years ago. You can find the post here:

    I also co-directed an animated PSA for the NBA & NRDC for the basketball league going green, using M. Sasek as an influence (the producer wanted that look and I whole-heartedly obliged). You can find the PSA on my blogpost here:

    Been a while since I’d visited your splog, Michael. I’ve missed it!
