The book showcases some of Brian Ajhar's characters in a collection from numerous editorial, advertising and children’s book projects he has worked on.

**This beautiful mini coffee table book is wonderful in quality and is produced as a 7"x 7" Hard cover. "Mugs" is sold with premium satin paper stock that is 35% thicker and offered with your choice of two types of covers.
1. Wrap around gloss dust jacket cover over black cloth hardcover.
2. Matte image wrap cover beautifully bounds the image directly to the cover.

Combining painterly expressions with my ideas have always been my passion. I am obsessed with textures and intuitive marks made by paint. I am fascinated by the subtlety of paint forms on paper and how that contributes to the sculpting of a character's personality. New technology has allowed me to further develop my style by giving me an up close look at how the intuitive marks and paint strokes grow into textures and subtle expressions.

I hope you enjoy this selection of Mugs & Beards.

This is just so original, creative, and overall fantastic. No story is needed for these illustrations because they tell their own.
