book review!
Posted in artists, books September 26th, 2008 by piablog


It’s been a while since I’ve done a book review and I’ve been buying a few books lately, so I will strive to review them all for you as I read them. This one I’m very happy to finally receive – it’s Esti’s self-published book called My Drawings: wolf men, girl skaters, three women, black skies and other stories


I have always adored Esti’s drawings on her blog since we discovered each other, and was honoured to be amongst the set of hands in her Hand Project XV. But having a hand held book of her work is something quite different – while her blog gives me a glimpse of what she is up to, the book whisks me straight into her world where I find inspiration in the way she captures simple moments and invents little stories about skater girls, black skies and fantasy forests…



Esti’s drawings are whimsical, intimate and thought-provoking. Inspired by our very own My Heart Wanders, she submitted this drawing below for the project, it is one of my favourites…


I can’t wait to see what else she creates in the time to come.


You can purchase Esti’s book here.

    That is so great. I visit her blog daily and i am completely entranced by her drawings. I find her personages always make me reflect and the emotions at times are very raw. I have seen the click button for months now.. and now i must purchase to experience what you so eloquently have said.
