    Blake E. Marquis Review

    Handmade typography legend, friend, and mentor Blake E. Marquis sent over his thoughts
    on our book, along with this cool type piece. (large version over at flickR)

    "Life Now has sat on my desk for a few weeks now as I think of a
    way to review it. At first I wanted to review it based on the art
    between the covers as its absolutely beautiful, or the amount of great names involved, but instead I'd do it based on something a lot of creatives overlook, the idea.

    Eric Smith has explored an idea based on life and friends that teaches from his own experience how short life really is and how small the world can be. As a peer of his its truly heartwarming to see him bring together a community of people to celebrate something we tend to overlook or ignore sometimes, life."

    One of my heros, and catalysts behind the Live Now project, Jamie Tworkowski took some
    time with our new book. He sent over his thoughts.

    "We believe there's power in words, especially words of hope.
    "Live Now" is an amazing example of words of hope coming alive through the collaboration and creativity of many talented artists."
