Sketches of Sound 19: Scott Gilbert

Since April 2010, has hosted a monthly project called “Sketches of Sound,” in which illustrators, most of them comics artists, are invited to draw a sound-related object. I post the drawing as the background of my Twitter account,, and then share a bit of information about the illustrator back on Call it “curating Twitter.”

The 19th entry features this drawing by Scott Gilbert. Scott Gilbert is a cartoonist, illustrator, and primarily a librarian living in Houston, Texas, since 1984. From 1989 through 2002 he produced the weekly comic strip True Artist Tales, and collaborated with Harvey Pekar on American Splendor.
