He's one of the few people I'm subscribed to on Facebook.... He posts some insane stuff from time to time that's just mind blowing. One of his recent ones was a sketch from the chaotic backstage of a fashion show. He must have a crazy photographic memory to pull off the entire action on paper.
Hehe, weird to see my old comment on this thread. I've since changed my mind about his technique...he really does appear to draw things without underdrawings. Somehow he pulls off the impossible!
I recently bought both the 2007 and 2011 sketch collections. They were quite pricey (on top of the cost of the two books I also had an 85$ shipping fee and a 15$ charge from duties). I have to say though that they were totally worth it! The 2011 one especially is super super impressive, and definitely has been a bragging point of the art book collection. One of the great things about his books is that because his drawings are often so complex, you can look through each of his books multiple times and find new things to admire that you missed the first times around. Looking through his drawings too you get a sense of how much fun he's having when he draws....makes you wanna pick up the pencil and get to work too!

Has he been to the US? I wonder if he's going to go on tour or anything, it'd be fascinating to watch him draw for hours, you could sketch along in the audience, copying what he comes up as he comes up with it.
