Review by jasonli
"Drawing for the Artistically Undiscovered" is a humorous, hands-on tour of the basics of drawing for kids. The illustrations will come familiar to any Roald Dahl fan, as Quentin Blake is a co-author and presumed illustrator for the book from Klutz. Almost every page is accompanied by a little exercise, and the authors encourage messes, mistakes and experimentation.Where Cassidy and Blake shine are in their use of humor. Through witty drawings and daring prose, they manage to turn such usually-dry subjects like one-point perspective into a fun little game. Where they err is in the erratic pacing of this book, the first stretch feels a bit too long while the last stretch feels a bit abrupt. A must-buy for aspiring illustrators, particularly given its focus on capturing the essence of a drawing rather than adhering to the technical rules.
