Best Birthday Present Ever

Published by Richard Hare on

My partner was kind enough to furnish me with a birthday present today. Never mind that my birthday is in February – she was heavily pregnant then, so I let her off. Then she surprised me with Quentin Blake‘s “Drawing For The Artistically Undiscovered”.

I want to improve my drawing skills. Visualising ideas is becoming more and more important in workshops, brainstorming and especially when storyboarding films. As with many things, a few simple principles and a lot of practice go a long way and recognition of your efforts is immensely satisfying.

If you hear Hugh MacLeod’s “wee voice… telling you “I’d like my crayons back, please”, this book is for you – it even comes with red and black pencils attached, plus a drawing pen.

Best birthday present ever. Even better than the last best one.

Corrected now, but did I really call Hugh MacLeod "Hugh Lloyd"? Good grief.
