Drawing for the Artistically Undiscovered by Quentin Blake, John Cassidy


Drawing for the Artistically Undiscovered by Quentin Blake, John Cassidy

Quentin Blake is one of the most celebrated illustrators in the world today, and the best person imaginable to collaborate on this sketchbook with training wheels. Full of inspirational artwork, instruction and plenty of white space reserved for the artist-to-be, the book comes with an artist-quality sketch pen and two watercolour pencils.


What a marvellous book - funny, accessible and inspirational. This may come as no suprise bearing in mind how many people have been captivated by award-winning Blake's wickedly comic illustrating style which has for so long graced the pages of Roald Dahl titles, to the extent that they seem almost inconceivable without them. The 'artistically undiscovered

's advocation of the Gung-Ho approach, his urge to express your 'you-ness'

-Headed Red-Spotted Gorff (whatever that is) and dealing with human anatomy, Blake's quirky guide will have you scribbling away in glee. There is plenty of space on each page for your own work, suggestion piles to get you going and even some space for you to fill in negative comments about the products. Includes two watercolour pencils (one black, one red) which smudge when wetted and a black ink sketch pen. Flying elephants? No problem! (Kirkus UK)
