Everyday Matters

Danny Gregory

Having fell into the habit of stopping by Danny Gregory’s site over the past year after first hearing about this book, it seemed time to check out the book. Part sketchbook and part memoir, the book explores the aftermath of his wife’s subway accident that left her paralyzed and him struggling to reevaluate inside a new existence, partially by teaching himself how to draw. Sometimes there isn’t much cohesion between the memoir bits about dealing with his bouts of existential angst and the sketchbook bits of various scenes around New York City — sometimes it feels like there should be more of a narrative as well, but the art is beautiful.
