Little description: Read This Comic and Start Drawing Today
For the first time ever, drawing instructor and graphic novelist Mark Crilley brings his easy-to-follow artistic instruction to aspiring artists in the form of a comic book, providing you with a one-of-a-kind how-to experience. In The Drawing Lesson, you’ll meet David—a young boy who wants nothing more than to learn how to draw. Luckily for David, he’s just met Becky—his helpful drawing mentor. Page by page, Becky teaches David (and you!) about the essential fundamentals that artists need in order to master drawing, all in a unique visual format. In panel after panel, Crilley provides lessons on shading, negative space, creating compositions, and more, with accompanying exercises that you can try for yourself. Are you ready to start your drawing lesson today?

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
I read Mark Crilley’s books before. He makes his books exceptional with the events and plots in each story, plus his art work brings his characters in a notch higher…. Love his work.But this one is story within story, a book within book, if it makes sense.
This book follows David, a very determined young artist, who wants to draw better but doesn’t have a clue how. Once he saw used books for sale, but it turned out he didn’t have enough money to buy a drawing book about cars. When he was shooed off, he walked through a park where he found a lady drawing the landscape. He got curious, and when he talked to her his drawing adventure began…
Though I found the lady character resembled Akiko a lot.
