An Illustrated Memoir of Love and Loss

By Danny Gregory


This item is temporarily out of stock on

After the loss of his wife in a tragic accident, beloved artist
Danny Gregory chronicled his grief in the medium he knows
best—the pages of his illustrated journals. This intimate
volume reproduces these journal pages in a stirring visual
memoir of Gregory’s journey towards recovery. Uniquely
sincere, and by turns tender, raw, and hopeful, Gregory’s
idiosyncratic text and illustrations capture the darkest and
lightest moments of his “year of magical drawing.” Gregory’s
process reminds us that creative expression offers its own
therapy, and that living each day to its fullest may be as
simple as putting pen to paper. Anyone who has experienced
loss will take solace in this refreshingly candid look at grieving,
while art lovers will marvel at the artist’s beautiful celebration
of the power of creation.
