“If I wanted to draw, I’d like to have Deborah Putnoi by my side. Now, thanks to her evocative and crystal clear book, all readers can have this opportunity.”—Howard Gardner, author of Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Reframed
“Deborah Putnoi is a brilliant artist and teacher. In this completely original, accessible, and beautiful book, she welcomes us into her artist’s world and shares her magic with anyone willing to make a mark. I want copies of this wonderful book for my family, friends, and students so that they can all experience firsthand the power and pleasure of making sense through drawing. Brava.”—Jessica Hoffmann Davis, EdD, educator and author of Why Our Schools Need the Arts and Why Our High Schools Need the Arts
“A bold and interactive workbook to get you to pick up your pencil. Putnoi really picks up on the concept that as adults we need to release what has been holding us back—often, in drawing, what is our inner critic. The table of contents is anything but linear and sets the stage for what Putnoi is asking you to embrace. Well worth exploring!”—San Francisco Book Review

When it comes to ideas, anything goes with this book. It's fun in a way that you can flip open any page and try something new. There are lots of things to try out. It's a book on drawing freely rather than focusing on drawing fundamentals such as observation drawing techniques, light and shadows, composition and values and all the more technical stuff.
The book's aimed at the casual art maker, doodlers, and those who might want to explore drawing as a creative outlet.

This book is very much in keeping with Rollo May's, The Courage To Create which I also highly recommend.
