Through­out the years, we have in­ter­viewed nu­mer­ous an­i­ma­tion le­gends in th­ese pages, and one piece of ad­vice that keeps pop­ping up in all the ar­ti­cles is “keep draw­ing each and ev­ery day!” This month, thanks to the ef­forts of ac­com­plished il­lus­tra­tor and char­ac­ter de­signer Cedric Hohn­stadt ( Veg­gieTales, 3-21 Pen­guins), there’s a new “su­per-charged” sketch­book that’s de­signed to help artists bring more life and emo­tions into their draw­ings. There are var­i­ous tips and point­ers in­ter­spersed through­out the book, but since the item is pre­sented mostly as a sketch­book, there are also lots of blank pages with sug­ges­tions for artists to get the best out of their daily draw­ings. Artists are en­cour­aged to draw things such as “Some­one you don’t like tries to give you a hug” or “Scrooge wakes up on Christ­mas morn­ing a changed man.” Over­all, it’s a re­ally handy way to get your daily draw­ing prac­tice while re­mind­ing your­self of the im­por­tant as­pects of the craft.
