The Daily Zoo 3: Heal­ing To­gether

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame - By Chris Ay­ers [De­sign Stu­dio Press, $29.95]

The third in­stall­ment of Ay­ers’ per­sonal take on art ther­apy has ar­rived, and marks year 10 of his re­cov­ery from leukemia with an en­gross­ing blend of il­lus­trated ad­ven­tures. Be­gun in 2006 as a daily sketch­book project, the lat­est Daily Zoo once again of­fers an in­cred­i­bly mov­ing col­lec­tion of an­i­mal draw­ings paired with mus­ings on his life jour­ney — from the loss of dear friends and the re­cov­ery of oth­ers, to mar­riage, to par­ent­hood.

Heal­ing To­gether fol­lows the tra­di­tion of The Daily Zoo, bring­ing read­ers into an imag­i­na­tive play­ground where horses wear lip­stick, tigers wear tuxe­dos and starfish might fight back. The se­ries is an in­spir­ing blend of artis­tic tal­ent (Ay­ers’ re­sume as a char­ac­ter de­signer and con­cept artist in­cludes Men in Black II and Fan­tas­tic Four) and per­sonal ex­po­si­tion. And, once more, a por­tion of pro­ceeds for Daily Zoo 3 will go to can­cer re­search and char­i­ties. [
