More entry level than I expected, but good cheerleading.
This covers materials, perspective, format, and addresses some very artistic sensibilities like protecting your work, pushing out the inner critic, and taking chances. I love the advice of starting with a patently "bad" work--get it out of t...

2.5 stars. Ok overview of drawing basics with particular tips for urban sketchers. Definitely feels like a variation of other things I've read before.

I'm always on the lookout for a sketching book to finally get me to sketch! Yea, I know... it is up to me and not a book but inspiration is always a good thing. While this one didn't quite get my butt in gear and start sketching as much as I should, it was a good primer book for those that want j...
