As I'm writing this review, Chris Ayers has already passed Year Seven of Daily Zoo, a personal art project to help himself recover from battling off leukemia. I'm glad he is fine. It's very inspiring to read his story, his journey.
The Daily Zoo Goes to Paris is the companion artbook for the exhibition that was held at Galerie Daniel Maghen in January 2012. It's hardcover edition, 64 pages, collecting 50 unpublished works. It's a bit thin but the art is great, always has been. The characters feel like they have a life on their own, and just by looking at the postures you can feel their personalities.
You must also check out Daily Zoo Year One, Daily Zoo Year Two and if you want a colouring book, MY Daily Zoo.
By the way, I'm hoping for Year Three - Six (and now Seven) to have their books published. Maybe into an ultimate collection. I don't mind.
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
Wenn man sich oder anderen Comicfiguren und Zeichentrick-Begeisterten eine Freude machen will. Sollte sich das Buch zu den anderen Daily Zoo-Büchern holen. Die Figuren sind so liebenswert gezeichnet, dass es immer wieder Spass macht sie anzusehen. Vertreibt sicher dunkle Gedanken und zaubert ein Lächeln ins Gesicht.
