So, a good friend of mine at Blue Sky Studios has just released a book which is so incredible that I simply must share.  His name is Mike Lee, and his book is called "Bodega". It is a picture book of 24 images which diagram a day-in-the-life of a corner bodega store in the city.  The graphite drawings are absolutely luminous, and his control of the medium is stunning. His understanding of light and form are so strong that you won't find it hard to believe how he is one of the top color-key artists in the film industry. Beyond the flawless technique, he's a clever story-teller, and the simplicity of the style holds layers of complex narratives that are humorous and observant.

You can find out more, including how to order a copy, at his website: mleedrawings.com
