Isolated Incidents

My buddy, Raf, is constantly busy. If he's not training a group of soldiers martial arts, choreographing knife fights for movies, doing conceptual drawings for films or Broadway, working on comic book pages for publication, then he's probably drawing something for his own entertainment.

Quite often Raf will sketch while listening to music, watching tv or whatever. As the mood strikes him, he will file away a piece and begin working on another -- only to return to the first piece later. Working this way has led to some pieces that are truly amazing in their detail. Just as wonderful are some of Raf's quick sketches -- you can see in just a few lines that everything is there. I've been fortunate over the years to watch Raf creating and the number of drawings that he's completed is astounding.

Thankfully, Raf has decided to start publishing the best of these drawings in "Isolated Incidents: The Art of Rafael Kayanan" books. "Volume I" is available now and you can read more about it here. I ordered mine the day I saw it was available. You should too.
