The Drawing Lesson A Graphic Novel That Teaches You How to Draw by Mark Crilley
I chose this new book- The Drawing Lesson A Graphic Novel That Teaches You How to Draw by Mark Crilley, in order to encourage my teenager to explore her artistic creativity. Countless times I'd find a variety of doodles in notebooks or pieces of scrap-paper, or crinkled in her desk. Crilley's new book is a hybrid between a graphic novel and art instruction book. It is perfect for the indecisive young reader or artist who is unsure of taking the leap to create art. This book is entertaining to read, even if you decide not to draw anything. The retro styled book features cartoon, comic like illustration in sepia tones. The Drawing Lesson also is a great springboard to encourage even the most reluctant of readers to pursue a new hobby. As a blogger I received a copy of this book for the purpose of writing this review.
