A beautiful, practical and nostalgic step-by-step drawing book for budding artists and illustrators. Although you may never have heard of him, E. G. Lutz is the author, animator and cartoonist who inspired a 19-year-old Walt Disney to start drawing and pursue a career in animation.
His books have been credited with playing a crucial role in Disney's development as an animator. Lutz's method of teaching illustration breaks down complex designs into simple shapes and easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions.
Although simple enough for children to follow, this technique uses principles that can be seen in great works of art today. With such timeless subjects as people, animals, flowers and charming antique trains and cars, you can progress from fairly simple subjects to more complicated designs. Credited with having taught generations of children and adults how to draw, this beautifully packaged book is the perfect gift for anyone wanting to learn the basics and start drawing.
