Liz Steel: An Illustrated Journey from DannyGregory on Vimeo.

6 years ago thanks to the inspiration of my friend Eza and Danny Gregory from New York, I started my first watercolour sketchbook. I am blown away by the adventures that it has led to and now I am featured in Danny’s new book An Illustrated Journey. It is an unbelievable honour to be included with some many other amazing artists. He did a video interview with me a few weeks ago very very late one night and it is now released as an episode of a ‘Video Chat Show’ with other artists in his book… I can wait to watch them as I know it will be extremely inspiring!!!!!

I am very pleased to be able to chat like this to all my friends and followers on my blog and flickr. In many ways I feel like I am talking to you too in this interview.

Everyone of you, the ‘hits’ as well as the comments have been a HUGE part in shaping where I find myself today. Thank you thank you thank you!

BTW, I hope you can all understand my Australian accent!

    Hi Liz!
    I just saw your interview on Danny's Blog. How very fun and inspiring!..your work is stunning, I've seen your work in the Urban Sketchers site. I've added you to my Reader and look forward to reading your Blog posts regularly. I've pre-ordered the book so I'll "see you" there.
    warmest regards!

    Hi Liz. We met at the first symposium. It was great to see and hear you talking with Danny and see that you're enthusiasm for sketching has not diminished in the least. Congratulations on your inclusion in the new book. I look forward to seeing your beautiful work in it, when I get my copy.

    Cheers from Portland - Bill

    Loved the video Liz! What a treat it was to hear you and see the books and tools you used in your hands. You have been and will always be an inspiration. Thank you!

    Loved it... you sounded GREAT... just like an Aussie friend of mine sounded when they first moved here (she's lost some of that now). Ordered the book, can't wait to see it. Congratulations on being included in the book... that's an honor in itself.

    The interview was so much fun! I almost feel like I met you in person (which I hope to do in Barcelona...? Will you be there? Hope so!). Can hardly wait for my copy of the book to arrive!

    Fantastic interview, Liz. It was so wonderful to hear about your process and ideas 'in person'! Your enthusiasm is infectious - I want to go out and sketch right now! Thank you for sharing this. My own copy of the book is on it's way to me and I'm very excited about it...checking the mailbox daily :)
