From Our Editors
Seems some people have a knack for creating art and what not. You know, the ones that even early in elementary school could sketch characters that looked remotely interesting and human? Well, the time has come for revenge now that Drawing for the Artistically Undiscovered has hit the market. If you are willing, this book will teach you from the beginning, taking you back so that you can make right what has for so long been wrong. It is a sketchbook with training wheels, encouraging users to develop and discover their own artistic sensibility.
