A Brush With Depth won the BPAA Book Illustration Award.

Congratulations to Rick Sealock! This book is an in depth retrospective of Rick’s work, and an irreverent and positive look at what it means to be an illustrator today. A must-read for all students of illustration. A must-read if you just like wacky-ness. And now a must-read if you like award-winning books!
