Zombies, pizza, aliens, video games, and the apocalypse … these are just a few of the worldly distractions that capture Red’s wandering mind. After 25 years of sketching, a history of never finishing projects, and a tendency for Red to find himself in the midst of absurd situations, he finally focuses - putting it all together to create the ultimate graphic novel. Jam-packed with thousands of cool sketches and hilarious stories; mini comics featuring the Minotaur, Cyclops, Abraham Lincoln, test anxiety, and the Boogieman; and Master the Skills, drawing tips with Master Fu. Red gives you a glimpse into the workings of his overactive mind with this embellished memoir.

Heavy Sketches - A Graphic Novel of Epic Proportions

This book is nothing short of phenomenal. It truly feels like 4 books in one. It is the kind of book I wish was around when I was a kid. The original artwork is engaging and unique. Literally every inch of the page is covered in something interesting. The narrative is funny, thought-provoking, and educational. It has the perfect blend of comedic pages (pirates, pizza, spoofs) balanced with more "Heavy" and educational themes (Abraham Lincoln, environmental destruction, television). It imparts a positive message for the next generation and will undoubtedly be a monster hit!

Good Points
Heavy Sketches is a book that has broad appeal for reluctant readers, comic fans, and art enthusiasts. It has a unique blend of engaging illustrations, loosely based autobiographical stories, hundreds of facts, glossaries, Greek/Latin roots, and more.
