"Based on the popular One Drawing A Day blog, this book presents 42 short drawing exercises—one per day for six weeks. These simple project ideas address different aspects of drawing including line quality, subject matter, inspiration, and color. Various styles are represented and a wide range of media is covered as Lawlor (Pratt Inst. & Parsons The New School for Design) and seven other professional illustrators explain the exercises. Also included is a gallery section showcasing the contributors’ own work. Beginning and experienced artists alike will find that this highly accessible book can boost motivation, strengthen discipline, or even jump-start creativity during a block." - Library Journal

Not what I expected, disappointed.
Unorganized, scattered, instruction lacking, hard to even look at.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
I've been drawing for about four years, petty much daily so I know I have a lot to learn. I've learned most of what I know by watching youtube videos and I highly recommend it. Read morePublished 3 months ago by L. Adamus
So sorry but the idea is great. Really great but you missed it. You did not deliver. I keep picking it up every few months to try again but I get stuck on the first few pages. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Ms Helen A Naylor

This is a nice book if you take it seriously. However, I would not go running to the art supply store to buy all the things they tell you to buy to start. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Aida Bibliowicz
This is a fun, clearly written book. I love the illustrations and how the author takes each step slowly and explains thoroughly.Published 10 months ago by Nolen
