The Drawing Lesson by Mark Crilley

The book, The Drawing Lesson by Mark Crilley is absolutely a terrific way to learn to draw and not the usual how to draw, type of book and yet it is so much fun to read and learn from! If you want to learn to sketch and draw, this book really can help. The inside is packed with easy to draw figures of characters, while in the designs of a comic strip It's like reading a comic, but the figures and shapes are simpler to follow and actually draw by yourself!
This is an excellent 2 in 1, comic and drawing book. You also learn as you read that the kid in this comic is trying to learn to draw. Therefore, you are following the lessons he is learning, while enjoying the comic throughout the book. I love that there is so much covered from learning to shade, negative space, creating the composition, and many other exercises to help you draw. It's definitely not the book that you would normally read to draw. I think that is what really caught my interest!
I really love to look through this book as if it's a book and again as a drawing guide. It covers the most used techniques, but in the form of a comic which is pretty neat! Plus, how simple it makes the drawing part and how we are following the kid inside to learn as he learns too. It's unique and totally different, but I love that about this book. It really does help in my opinion, perfect for new beginners in drawing and anyone who loves  to draw and maybe interested in reading a comic as well! Finally, I highly recommend this book! It makes drawing fun and interesting, and is not like your normal, typical how to draw book!
