A Beautiful Tribute: Google Illustrates Some of Steinbeck's Monumental Works





Perhaps no novel opens more powerfully than John Steinbeck's Cannery Row: "Cannery Row in Monterey in California is a poem, a stink, a grating noise, a quality of light, a tone, a habit, a nostalgia, a dream."

Steinbeck delicately drags the reader into the visceral, tactile, and palpable worlds of his Depression era characters. We smell and taste and spit out life with them.

Today Google doodled some of Steinbeck's monumental works in celebration of his birthday. The illustrated slides, featuring quotes from the depicted novels, are a bold and beautiful tribute to a cherished American author. Hats off Google- gorgeously executed.

February's Guest Contributor:
Jim Bradshaw

Jim Bradshaw will guest post for DA in the month of February. I could go on and introduce him to you in my own words, but I was lucky enough to discover that he can do it better than I could ever hope to, and in third person.

Jim lives in rural South Jersey. It's not all factories and jammed highways people. He has a wife, 3 kids, 2 cats and a Boston Terrier named Annabelle. During the day, he's an art director. In his real life, he draws, doodles, illustrates, carves, paints, photographs and does any other creative thing he can get his hands on. You will rarely find him without his moleskine. Drawing and doodling strange characters and made up worlds has been one of his favorites things to do since early childhood. It's not only his passion, it's his sanity.

Every word about himself is true. So many artists claim to never be without their sketchbook handy, but I don't even question that fact with Jim. His flickr site and blog are packed with spread upon spread of robots, rocket ships and odd characters. He does it daily, updates often, and fills every space with ink.

Welcome Jim, I am very much looking forward to your postings.

January's Guest Contributor:
Dana Haim

I met Dana about four years ago through my sister. Although a bit younger than me, we shared a common interest in the creative, and for a short time, also a part-time studio space together. I quickly learned of her uncanny ability to sketch and doodle and fill the pages of every sketchbook she owns with a process and a purpose to make something beautiful.

She's currently working on her thesis project in London (an MA in textile futures) and the subject matter revolves around everything lace. I recently had the opportunity to see the pages of her studies and they very simply just made me smile. It also occurred to me that while deconstructing lace, Dana had made something I found so frilly and feminine and turned it into something new: full of color, dimension and shadows.

The following is a glimpse of some scans and photos that she could send me from her current location. We'll get more of her work and everything that inspires her over the next few weeks, as she'll be our guest blog contributor for the month of January.

Novemberís Guest Contributor: uberkraaft

Nine years ago, uberkraaft put down his pen and pencil and joined the real world. Although a fine arts degree major and doodler from the age of three, his nine year hiatus from drawing was broken six months ago when he turned off his television and started doodling for fun again.

Now he's in love with making stuff and it shows all over his work. Get to know him and his art on flickr and twitter, as he'll be contributing to our blog for the month of November.

Oh yea, and click here to check out his drawings on bananas, guitars, envelopes and the like.
