I really love being able to see a lot of the background drawings to the workings of Robs mind. This book is packed with odd sketches and titbits which unfortunately leads me to the major downside of the book. It has no commentary, no text to guide the viewer or explain. You're just given masses of amazing drawings to stumble through alone and find your own real meaning and explanations for. I wish Rob had done a slightly thicker book with a bit of in depth thought process on his work but this is still a great work! A good art book, but if you are looking for a window into his creative process, perhaps not what you are looking for.

"But I Can't Do Anything Else!" is a flat out essential book for any kid wanting to be an art hooligan, punk illustrator or television big-wig...you know, the great minds of our society. It is also my answer to anybody claiming to have "neat ideas." HA!

You think YOU have good ideas? Buddy, Schrab has packed his new book with concept sketches, storyboards and full pitch illustrations from a career of being the weirdest ideas man in the room. Schrab is currently a TV director, but over the years he has been SO MUCH MORE!

Want sketches from "Heat Vision and Jack," Schrab's (in)famous TV pilot where Jack Black is the smartest man on Earth and Owen Wilson is his wise-cracking talking motorcycle partner? It's in there! How `bout monsters and robots from the mind behind the animated film "Monster House," `cause Mr. Schrab wrote that one, too. Still not satisfied? What about mummy cowboys, Traffic Light automatons, mutant smack downs, Grannies armed with atomic rabbits and MORE insanity from the writer/artist of the multi-award winning comic book Scud: the Disposable Assassin?

Every artist knows that good ideas are not an easy thing to come by. Schrab has so many so many bizarrely brilliant ideas he feels confident he can put them in his new book and let them float away like a tiny, paper boat down the storm drain of the mass market into the sewer of your imagination.

Schrab's art style is a fun, fast pastiche of marker and muck that will send you down memory lane. Schrab draws like the coolest middle-school kid you've ever seen. Lacking gloss, thankfully free of pretension and with little computer coloring, Schrab manages to capture the panic stricken gestalt of trying to stay immature through maturity while still earning a dime.
