His work encompasses a broad range of media and disciplines, from comic books and graphics to interior and product design, but is connected by Mariscal's characteristically lively and exuberant style. Drawing Life is Mariscal's personal reflection upon his fascinating and varied work. It has been written, designed and illustrated by Mariscal and is the first book to exclusively cover his work, it will accompany an exhibition of Mariscal's work to be held at the Design Museum in London in July.
