The Daily Zoo: Vol. 1

Keeping the Doctor at Bay with A Drawing A Day

by Chris Ayers with foreword by J.J. Abrams

 

In the spring of 2005 Chris Ayers was busy working as a concept artist in the Hollywood film industry. That came to a crashing halt when he was diagnosed with leukemia on April Fool's Day. After a year-long period of treatment and recovery he started a sketchbook called The Daily Zoo on the anniversary of his diagnosis.

Over the next 365 days he would draw one animal each day, challenging both his self-discipline and imagination. Most importantly it would allow him the focused opportunity to celebrate the gift of each healthy day. The pages of The Daily Zoo: Vol. 1 are chock-filled with 365 distinct critters, ranging from curious pandas to sinister hyenas, athletic aardvarks to zealous zebras, and his choice of artistic styles are as diverse as his subject matter. Alongside the images Chris, whose big screen credits include Men in Black II, X-Men 3, and The Penguins of Madagascar, ties in commentary about his cancer experience, the sources of his artistic inspiration and his creative methods. Whether you're a beginning artist or a seasoned pro, this book will leave you inspired to grab the nearest pencil, pen, brush or crayon and start drawing!

The Daily Zoo: Vol. 3    NEW!

Healing Together

by Chris Ayers 

 

The imaginative and often whimsical animal menagerie of the Daily Zoo continues to grow with this latest collection. The therapeutic project, drawing an animal each day in response to being treated for acute leukemia, has been a constant companion to creator/survivor Chris Ayers since he first started it in 2006.
 

This volume features characters from Years 3 through 9 of the project, inspired by various events and personal encounters on his journey of remission - from traveling the world and the amazing people he met along the way, to planning his wedding and preparing for the arrival of his first child.
 

Come inside and explore the playground of Chris' imagination, where horses wear lipstick, tigers wear tuxedos, and the starfish like to fight back.
 

• 8" x 8"
• 160 pages
• Over 175 illustrations accompanied by
   artist's commentary and reflection.
