Description
For the first time, Joe Ledbetter's best paintings have been compiled into one book. Influenced by classic animation, graphic design, and daily life, Joe Ledbetter's art is... well... a lot of things. Light- hearted in its approach, he often combines cute and cuddly creatures with unfortunate -- albeit humorous -- situations.

With emphasis on the subversive and absurd, these scenarios are all too familiar, questioning our tendency of taking life (and ourselves) too seriously. Creatures of Habit offers a look at Ledbetter's unique and original painting style during the first five years of his career (2003 - 2008).

The book is arranged chronologically, and the viewer can follow the development of the artist's trademark visual style of emblematic line- work, vibrant colors, and endearing characters. Throughout the book, Ledbetter includes his favorite paintings from his many solo exhibitions, themed group art shows, collaborations with fellow artists (such as Nathan Jurevicius, Luke Chueh and Greg "Craola" Simkins), and many pieces from private collections previously unseen by most fans. Hardcover, full color.
