Every aspiring artist needs a sketchbook – but you know that when you get a beautiful, brand new sketchbook, it’s way too hard to make that first scribble. We know that feeling and obviously so did John Hendrix because he created Drawing is Magic: Discover Yourself in a Sketchbook to help everyone with this kind of problem.
John Hendrix is an associate professor of art at Washington University in St. Louis and an illustrator whose works have been published in Sports Illustrated, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, the New Yorker, Esquire and the New York Times – he knows what it’s like to be an artist. In order to help the striving stars, he created Drawing is Magic: Discover Yourself in a Sketchbook and the idea was to teach them to find their inner creativity. He does that through interesting exercises, drawings and lessons in his (sketch)book. His aim is to show people how to find their inner artistic voice – and he can do it for you too.
“This isn’t just a pad of paper. This is a playground” says John Hendrix in his book, and it’s exactly how you should think of it. Give him a chance to teach you and transfer his knowledge and experience, helping you to become the best possible artistic version of yourself.
