About the Author
Lee Judah Ames (January 8, 1921 – June 3, 2011 ) was an American artist noted for his Draw 50... learn-to-draw books. He was born in Manhattan, New York. His first job at age eighteen was at Walt Disney Studios. He has since led a career as an advertising artist, fine artist, cartoonist, designer, animation in-betweener, illustrator, and as an artist-in residence at Doubleday. His series of 26 Draw 50... books take a friendly and minimalist approach to teaching drawing while the books often contain no instructional text. He enlisted in the military and served as a second lieutenant during World War II. He and his wife Jocelyn resided in Mission Viejo, California.

"Leslie can draw a Siamese cat better than anybody else!" Such peer acclaim and encouragement generate incentive. Contemporary methods of art instruction (freedom of expression, experimentation, self-evaluation of competence and growth) provide a vigorous, fresh-air approach for which we must all be grateful...The use of this book should be available to anyone who wants to try another way of flapping his wings. Perhaps he or she will then get off the ground when a friend says, "Leslie can draw a Siamese cat better than anybody else!"

The second part that I liked about it was how it is focussed on how the charaters are drawn. All 50 cats are very well thought out and it is easy to see how the artist came to the final piece in each sketch.
This teaches you how to sketch cats its not a book with art that is there to look at. The point of drawing is knowing how to go from a sketch to a finished piece of art that actually looks believable. Your not going to learn anything unless you go through the steps and see what your drawing in many shapes not just a pretty blob with hair.
Thew two things I did not like about it is that it would have been nice to see how to shade using hatching and cross hatching. Secone it would be nice to see the artists opinion on possable ways to display facial epression. Then agian I am a cartoon and fantasy artist so this may be just something that does not apply to this book due to the type of art it teaches. Over all five out of five for me.
