“Nobody draws better than Barron. Not you, not your little sister, your architect dad, not your rebellious ex-boyfriend who draws with his own blood, not the most talented kid at your art school. Not your favorite artist in the whole world; I’ve seen the work with my own eyes. Nobody draws better than The Barron.” This is what David Choe said about Barron Storey, the celebrated illustrator and art teacher, who is also described as a humble, down-to earth person, apart from being a genius. The video shares the experience of paging through the visual journals of Barron Storey at an exhibition at The Society of Illustrators in New York.

It reminded me of the wonderful interface that a simple paper diary is for catching and developing fuzzy ideas in a visual and explorative way. No wonder that keeping a visual journal is a habit for many creative people – as you can see for instance in this flickr group. (via laughing squid)
