These simple project ideas address different aspects of drawing including line quality, subject matter, inspiration, and color. Various styles are represented and a wide range of media is covered as Lawlor (Pratt Inst. & Parsons The New School for Design) and seven other professional illustrators explain the exercises. Also included is a gallery section showcasing the contributors’ own work. Beginning and experienced artists alike will find that this highly accessible book can boost motivation, strengthen discipline, or even jump-start creativity during a block." - Library Journal
