While Tom Kidd is happily taking us on a journey through his life’s work, he doesn’t want to call his book an autobiography – it’s a Kiddography. After discovering the meaning of the title we delve straight into Tom’s early life as he discusses what led him to become an artist.
Luckily for us, Tom has had quite an interesting life. He describes how falling into a coma caused by a mosquito bite, and the subsequent recovery from it, became a huge turning point towards him becoming a great artist.
Along the way he narrowly missed the
Vietnam War and soon moved to
This is a personal trip through Tom’s life with a sprinkling of helpful guidance along the way. Sadly, you won’t discover any step-by-step instructions here, although there is a four-page spread that details a few of his artistic secrets.
This book is pure eye candy if you’re a fan of Tom Kidd’s work, and even if you’re not familiar with his artwork you’re still sure to find this a compelling read.
