My new book, Name That Movie: 100 Illustrated Movie Puzzles is in bookstores, (or save $2.25 by ordering on Amazon.)
This book started out as some sketchbook drawings, I began posting them here on Drawger, Jason Sacher saw them and pitched it to Chronicle Books, and Editor Steve Mockus gently guided this to completion.
There are 600 drawings in the book, 100 movies and an index in back with film titles. My brilliant wife, Jill von Hartmann designed the book, and put up with a lot of Sunday afternoons with me sitting on the sofa with the remote control and a sketchbook.
