About the Author
Gavin Aung Than is a freelance cartoonist based in Melbourne, Australia. After working in the corporate graphic design industry for eight years he quit his unfulfilling job at the end of 2011 to focus on his true passion, drawing cartoons. Gavin launched Zen Pencils at the start of 2012, a cartoon blog which adapts inspirational quotes into comic stories, and hasn't looked back since.

Gav's comics really appeal to me, because as a person who loves doing art, I can relate how the pressures of the professional and familial world can distract you doing something that gives you joy. This is ONE of the many themes that Gav chooses quotes from, and I know for sure that there is/will be a comic that will speak the truth for each individual person.
Also the art itself is pretty cool to look at... ;)
His comics are invigorating, optimistic, and remind the reader to pursue those things that are most valuable and precious in life. It would be reductive to simply say he hopes the reader will follow his or her dreams. It's closer to the mark to say that he believes and wants the reader to believe, that there is more possible than we may imagine. And rather than offer platitudes or any kind of self-help book. He shows us how every day, there are those willing to do the hard work of living well and earnestly.
I've been following his works since 2013 and whenever I read his comic I feel good and inspired at the same time. His cartoons are lively and colourful which makes reading his comics very fun too. I've already recommended his work to most of my friends and colleagues!
The book which he has released, Zen Pencils Volume II, looks pretty and the materials used are of good quality too.
I would definitely recommend this book.
Fantastic gift for anyone for the holidays, in case you're wondering.
