Drawing Made Easy

By E.G Lutz (Lom Art – an imprint of Micheal O’Mara books)

First printed in 1921, this is the book credited with inspiring Walt Disney’s animation career. A simple step-by-step breakdown of how to draw using basic shapes and drawing everything from birds and animals to people, actions and objects.  Joe, 10, loves drawing and this is the book he chose from French book shop L’ecume des pages on St Germain Boulevard in Paris. He sat and started breaking down the things he loves to draw, explaining that he will still put his own style on them, but use this as a building block.  Any book that inspires that has to be good! And Walt did go on to have a rather memorable career – so this could be a great investment…

Available from Amazon.com and all good book stores. Try your local art stores too.
