Just start with a scribble! Start with a Scribble will banish your inner critic and kick-start your inner genius, as you learn to draw with a little how-to and a lot of just-do. An artist-quality pen and watercolor pencils (red and black) are included. Inside, you’ll find: Prompts to inspire you (e.g., “emotional rabbits”) Doodles to finish (“Mrs. Thudkins takes her floppaterasis for a walk”) Techniques to try (only when the mood strikes you), from shading to perspective And plenty of wide-open space to play around in. We’re much less interested in the appearance of something than in the something itself. So, when you’ve settled on your subject (a monster? a cockatoo?), first figure out what its essence should be (ferocious? bashful?) . . . and then, just toss that ball up (artistically speaking) and give it a good swat across the net. Voilà! You’re an artist. Throughout, beloved illustrator Sir Quentin Blake shares sage advice, from “it’s best to name your animal after you draw it” to “don’t worry too much yet about ankles.” The most important lesson? Let go and give in to your own creative spirit! Publisher's note: Start with a Scribble is an updated North American edition of Drawing for the Artistically Undiscovered (Klutz, 1999).

Life is sharper when it's lived on the edge. Experiences are hyper-real and memories are keen and adrenalinecharged. This collection chronicles the photographs of Renaissance man Hubertus von Hohenlohe. Von Hohenlohe is not just content with the status quo. Renowned for his sporting prowess as an awardwinning skier, and admired for his physical courage and dashing personal style, this jet-setting trendsetter has a bold vision that is clear yet challenging. Echoing the statements of his friend and mentor, Andy Warhol, von Hohenlohe's work is modern and visionary.

In this eBook version called 'Zen drawing - a new way to become mindful', the reader finds lots of extra background information on Zen Buddhism. It also includes additional meditation techniques that can be combined with Zen drawing. The drawing exercises included in this eBook focus on applying drawing to reach self awareness, inner peace and stillness. Zen drawing is based on the work of Frederick Franck. Artist Michelle Dujardin explains how to use realistic drawing as a meditation technique in a practical and contemporary way. This ebook is for people who are interested in finding new ways to become Mindful. Michelle shows you how to connect with the world around you and achieve a meditative state while drawing. Zen drawing will awaken your 'inner artist’ and allow your hands to follow the movement of your eyes.

This eBook is derived from the hardcover book called 'the Zen drawing Pack', which was published in October 2014 by Rockpoint publishers and as an eBook called 'The Zen drawing eBook' by the authors. In this eBook called 'Zen drawing - a new way to become an artist', the authors have put less emphasis on the Zen Buddhism background of Zen drawing and more emphasis on the artistic benefits that can be found by using the techniques described in the hardcover book. For instance by adding a chapter on the use of watercolors and ink. As with all their books on Zen drawing, this eBook is based on the works of Frederick Franck and Betty Edwards. In this eBook artist Michelle Dujardin helps you to awaken your inner artist and add soul to your sketches by ignoring conventional drawing techniques and focus on really seeing your subject. Michelle helps you achieve a meditative state just by changing the way you see a subject, and allow your hands to follow the movement of your eyes. When you trust your own drawing reflex, the art that you create will become more expressive and beautiful than what you've done before. Not great with a pencil? Don't worry, everyone can learn to draw this way and you don't need any special talent or class. For any level of artist, from a beginner with little talent to an illustration expert, Zen drawing is not about making perfect pictures, it is about the experience of drawing, finding inspiration, and connecting to the world around you.

Is your child getting lost in the system, becoming bored, losing his or her natural eagerness to learn? If so, it may be time to take charge of your child’s education—by doing it yourself. The Well-Trained Mind will instruct you, step by step, on how to give your child an academically rigorous, comprehensive education from preschool through high school—one that will train him or her to read, to think, to understand, to be well-rounded and curious about learning. Veteran home educators Susan Wise Bauer and Jessie Wise outline the classical pattern of education called the trivium, which organizes learning around the maturing capacity of the child’s mind and comprises three stages: the elementary school “grammar stage,” when the building blocks of information are absorbed through memorization and rules; the middle school “logic stage,” in which the student begins to think more analytically; and the high-school “rhetoric stage,” where the student learns to write and speak with force and originality. Using this theory as your model, you’ll be able to instruct your child—whether full-time or as a supplement to classroom education—in all levels of reading, writing, history, geography, mathematics, science, foreign languages, rhetoric, logic, art, and music, regardless of your own aptitude in those subjects. Thousands of parents and teachers have already used the detailed book lists and methods described in The Well-Trained Mind to create a truly superior education for the children in their care. This extensively revised fourth edition contains completely updated curricula and book lists, links to an entirely new set of online resources, new material on teaching children with learning challenges, cutting-edge math and sciences recommendations, answers to common questions about home education, and advice on practical matters such as standardized testing, working with your local school board, designing a high-school program, preparing transcripts, and applying to colleges. You do have control over what and how your child learns. The Well-Trained Mind will give you the tools you’ll need to teach your child with confidence and success.

PICTURE THIS: A BOLD NEW BUSINESS STRATEGY DRAWN FROM TODAY'S HOTTEST VISUAL TRENDS Scientific studies have shown that looking at pictures, drawings, and other graphics engage both sides of the brain--opening the "mind's eye" and business systems to new possibilities we might not otherwise see. Frustrated by lackluster approaches to strategy, companies are combining illustrations and color with business strategy with phenomenal success. If you want to go beyond drawing on the back of a napkin, this book shows you how. Picture Your Business Strategy will help you master the principles of "strategic illustration," a proven system for visualizing ideas. Pictures and strategy come to life in the board, conference, or meeting room quickly, easily, and brilliantly. With just a few markers and paper, you can: Use pictures to restructure, reorganize, and rethink your business plan Draw lines between people, processes, and productivity Create new business possibilities through pictures and idea sharing Chart your progress with benchmarks and goal lines Create a project activity map that allows you and your team to see the big picture--and make it succeed Packed with clever drawing tips and simple templates to help you unlock your creativity, this inspiring book gives you everything you need to start bringing your big ideas to life. Developed by Christine Chopyak at Alchemy: The Art of Transforming Business, the book provides a fresh new business model for developing specific "seeable" actions that can be measured, tracked, and cascaded into other priority areas. There are so many practical, purposeful ways to use drawings in your everyday work environment, you'll wonder why you never did it before. Most important, you and your team will learn how to turn strategic illustrations into real-world results. Whether you're a boardroom doodler, corporate cartoonist, or Picasso for fun and profit, Picture Your Business Strategy will help you draw your way to success. "With this approach, organizations can create a cohesive and authentic understanding among teams that ultimately leads to increased motivation and bottom-line results. Chris shows us that drawing isn't just for kids, it's for leaders looking for a competitive advantage." --Tamara Kleinberg, serial entrepreneur and founder of TheShuuk.com "A brilliant piece of work that brings together the finite world of words with the infinite possibilities of pictures, taking strategic thinking and collective wisdom to a whole new level and presenting a more colorful way of imagining/imaging the future." -- Sabina Spencer, business strategist and author of The Heart of Leadership
