Review

Kingman Daily Minor, 12/22/10
“Would make a great gift.”

Boston Globe, 1/16/11
"Sharpen your pencils and open your sketchbook; your teacher is waiting.”

Infodad.com, 1/20/11
“The book offers a set of valuable introductory lessons in putting what you see—in the real world or your mind’s eye—down on paper.”

 

Midwest Book Review, February 2011
“A must for anyone who wants to pursue art but doesn’t know where to start.”

Deseret
News, 2/26/11
“Kistler provides detailed instructions and tips that take the mystery out of making simple drawings that look good. He also uses a sense of humor and encouraging words to help.”

 

Sacramento Book Review, April/May 2011
“Kistler’s approach is light and fun, and rather than overwhelming with technical terminology and intimidating concepts, he instead starts you out putting pencil to paper. Within the first few pages of the book, you are already well on your way…The approach presented in this book works so well because you get instant results, which inspire you to continue with the process.”

It is a fantastic book for BEGINNERS and it is very well written.I had a lot of fun doing the exercises in this book and I did them all. The author refers you to some of his video, on line, which help understanding even better what he is teaching.
I highly recommend this book

This book got me over the resistance I had to learning how to draw. By doing the exercises each day for the 30 days I gained confidence with each little project. Prior to this book I had the whole "I can't draw" attitude and mental block. This book helped me get over that.

Now, about six months later, I'm actually drawing portraits. No, I didn't fully learn how to draw portraits from this book (although he does dabble in it). But I never would have had the confidence to find other books to learn portrait drawing if I hadn't read this book in the first place (and done the work). It's a great starting point.

Absolutely 5+ stars.

I purchased a number of books in my recent initiative to learn to draw as an adult and this was the only one that truly started at the very beginning. It provides very clear and detailed steps and the lessons build skills in a logical manner. The tone of the writing is fun and encouraging and the liberal display of other beginner student's works throughout the books is an encouraging a way to measure your own progress. After many years of wishing I could, I can finally draw.

I haven't read the entire books but I have done some of the exercises. The writer takes a solid down to earth approach and emphasizes that you use repetitive techniques and slowly build on your skills. This approach seems to be very effective with drawing.

This is a terrific drawing book! I've never had so much fun learning and now take my sketch book everywhere! Just an example of what I can do, and only 4 lessons in! Thanks Mark for making learning to draw so accessible!

I have tried many, many learn to draw books. They either start off too hard, or start off simple enough but move ahead too quickly.
This book was perfect. It assumes you can't draw and starts off very simple. Each lesson has a lesson challenge at the end to encourage
you to play around with what you have learned. You can do the lesson in a day or take several days. What I really like about this book
is that each lesson builds on the last lesson 'gradually'. It also encourages you to use your imagination and explore other possibilities
with your new knowledge.

This book, aimed at older youth and adults is a good place to start if you're just beginning to draw. It is also a good way to review your skills or find daily warm ups if you're already used to drawing. A good companion to his earlier books aimed at younger children, adults would find this useful if they want to help their children learn to draw.
