For as long as I could remember I wanted to be an artist and that is what I studied growing up, however I’ve somehow ended up as a data analysist. I’ve continued to draw, but over the years the amount of art I’ve produced has withered to very little as my free time has been whittled away and insp...

Useful little book! Short and to the point he doesn't go on about the probably hundred of types of notebooks and sketchpads, just gives a few guidelines and says don't worry about it. It was specific enough to be helpful but vague and light enough that you didn't feel pressured. Unlike his granny...

Awesome. I teach drawing, especially in journals, and found this to be a book I wish I'd written, and illustrated. Scheinberger's drawings are fun, and expressive, and personal, and anyone reading this book should get the sense to bring themselves into their work in a way that it takes people yea...
