A great lesson. I highly recommend this book to those hoping to draw and those who draw. It is never to late to remember what you have learned.
Danny encourages and suggests many helpful ways to get through the things
that block creative work. Gives exercises to help one along.
I liked the stories of other artists and all the fun sketches.
But whatever you find made by Danny Gregory (books, videos, drawing classes, etc...) get it !!!
Is so much information, so pure advice, no bull..., so much common sense, so much technical advices.
Is all render with humour and subtle feeling "touch". All coming from a talented artist & a sensitive person.
I can talk/write about him for hours...but I have no time. Why? He taught me to use every free minute ...so...I'll go drawing :0)
The text is typeset in a handwriting font, which might make it hard to read for long periods of time. The good thing is this book can be picked up and read in portions from any page.
It's a very inspirational and motivating book to read, especially when in a artist block. As I finish the book, I begin to see objects in life differently. Everyone can have that creative license, as suggested by the book title.
There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.
