I was invited to write three chapters / workshops for a new book, Creative Sketching Workshop, by Pete Scully, published in October. It is a great new book of 20 workshops packed with different exercises to try out.
There are a total of 12 contributors from around the world: Virginia Hein, James Hobbs, Nina Johansson, Ilga Leimanis, Kumi Matsukawa, Shiho Nakaza, Melaine Reim, Rita Sabler, Liz Steel, Paul Wang, Samantha Zaza and the author Pete Scully.
In addition to these contributors, there are also many other guest artists whose beautiful artworks are included. This 176-page paperback is packed with inspiration and insights.
My three workshops are: Architecture, Portraits at Home and Pets and Animals. In addition to my own sketches (alone and as Ortelius Drew), I also asked others, including some of my former CSM students, to contribute their drawings to these chapters. From my courses, Portfolio Sketchbook, Total Drawing (Online), Drawing Portfolio – Daytime and Bespoke Training, the following of my former students contributed
Sandra Cox – Total Drawing (Online)
Gazala Haq – Drawing Portfolio – Daytime
Loretta McGregor – Bespoke Training
Ana Peigneux Ortega – Drawing Portfolio – Daytime
Felix Siew – Drawing Portfolio – Daytime
Thank you to Isheeta Mustafi of RotoVision Books and Pete Scully for asking me to be one of the contributors to this book which was a wonderful new experience!
