If Pascal Campion is half as sweet as his artwork, the man must be a saint. The colors and relationships and perfect balance of details and broad strokes all come together in a moving and beautiful way. I’ve yet to come across one of his illustrations that I don’t adore.

In 2005, he decided to do at least one sketch a day for 3000 days, with the goal of eventually producing a high-end coffee table book from his favorites. I get his Facebook feed where he has been posting his illustrations every day, and I can tell you they are all beautiful and stylish and smart and sweet. His Kickstarter campaign for the book concluded last week, and I’m thrilled for him. To give you some idea of how beloved this guy is, his goal was $15K and he raised over $105K. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Here’s some more of the lovely, heart-felt works of this talented, talented man. I know you will enjoy him as much as I do!

    • I’m glad. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love his work. And I found out that a friend hired him for their booth at Comicon, and he’s just as sweet as he seems!

      • Can I ask you a question? (As blogger) I’ve never gotten comments from anyone but friends of mine—it seems as tho’ the whole world if bloggers is commenting away having lively discussion! My q is bonehead: how does one get comments? I’d love it if you’d/or any of your readers wld ≪comment≫!!! Lisa (of bananamap.com)

      • It’s interesting you should ask that. I also never expected to get comments from anyone but my people, but once I started commenting on other bloggers’ things (when I had something to say, that is), they started commenting back. It’s like likes and follows and ratings. One good turn begets another.
