I have’ em. Maybe you do too. Things you explore, collect, draw, in obsessive ways. This week on the Club, I look at a handful of artists who focus on one subject or approach and really dig deep.
As a result, they discover worlds within worlds. Their art turns out to be less about their subject than about something else — themselves, their way of seeing.
I find it obsessively fascinating. I hope you will too.

I enjoyed viewing these books. Thank you for showing them.
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE this series?? Thank You!
This was a fascinating series.
It is great to see the enriching , liberating effects obsession gave these Artists through their mission.
Thank You !
Really enjoyed that. I am always looking for things that I haven’t drawn before, but this makes the opposite point, to keep on at the same type of thing. Thanks.
Really enjoying the series, discovering all sorts of artists I had never heard of. Thank you. Is proving expensive as my book buying habit has grown again as a result!
