Ghostly has been honored to work with Behance on their Action Method line, and we’re taking the partnership one step further with our new Ghostly Artist Editions series.
These custom books will feature original designs by artists we admire, giving each item in the Artist Editions a distinct look and character. They’ll also, hopefully, provide inspiration for you in your own work. The first artist we’ve chosen to collaborate with should be familiar to longtime fans of Ghostly: Rochester, NY artist Andy Gilmore.
"Sketchbooks and notebooks have been essential tools in my creative process as a means to explore and connect ideas and concepts," said Andy of his custom design. "When given the opportunity to design for the Action Book covers my goal was to create imagery that represented this coalescence of ideas and forms.”
The Artist Editions carry on the mission of making ideas happen, while showcasing artists whose work we love.

How to Use Action Method
1 Capture Action steps, relentlessly.During a brainstorm/meeting or on the run, ideas can come and go unless they are captured as action steps.
2 Tend to your Backburner.Keep a "Backburner" to catch ideas that may someday become actions. Whether it is an idea for the future or some small errand you want to remember, put it in the backburner and then forget about it.
3 Think beyond lines and boxes.The dot matrix on the front and back of each page serves as a subtle guide for your notations and sketches.
P Preparation and Focus Items.Plan for meetings beforehand and be sure to address your focus items.
