The Draw­ing Club: Mas­ter­ing the Art of Draw­ing from Life

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame - By Bob Kato [Quarry Books, $24.99]

If you’re look­ing for fresh in­spi­ra­tion for your work, or are look­ing for tips to fine-tune your fig­ure and character draw­ing skills, we rec­om­mend this de­but pa­per­back from L.A.-based artist and ed­u­ca­tor Bob Kato. In­spired by Kato’s “The Draw­ing Club” live model ses­sions, the book aims to help both pro­fes­sion­als and hob­by­ists flex and build their artis­tic mus­cles.

Writ­ten with the same en­ergy that drives the cre­ative club, this fig­ure draw­ing man­ual teaches read­ers how to trans­late life to the page, tell a visual story, get com­fort­able with a va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als and dis­cover an in­di­vid­ual artis­tic voice, as well as ex­plor­ing comic ap­proaches to draw­ing. A hefty ar­ray of in­spir­ing ex­am­ples is also pro­vided in a gallery of both fine work and character art cre­ated by master artists and work­ing an­i­ma­tors.
