Motivated in Drawing

For the first time, the mere sight of a pencil and a blank piece of paper is not as daunting after reading this book. Because I'm a fan of educational graphic novels, I loved the easy pace that the book provides for me. By looking and practicing with the main character of the book, drawing doesn't seem so scary anymore.

As a child, I have envied people who can doodle and when they doodle, it looks like a work of art. When asked to doodle, I draw a complete blank. I would rather jump off a diving board at that moment when asked to draw anything.

In The Drawing Lesson, you’ll meet David—a young boy who wants nothing more than to learn how to draw. Luckily for David, he’s just met Becky—his helpful drawing mentor. Page by page, Becky teaches David (and you!) about the essential fundamentals that artists need in order to master drawing, all in a unique visual format. In panel after panel, Crilley provides lessons on shading, negative space, creating compositions, and more, with accompanying exercises that you can try for yourself.
