In this intriguing new book, Andrew Marr explores the subject of drawing and painting through his own experience. He considers the mechanics of the process - the act of making and its importance for a happy life - alongside the ways in which good drawing or painting can make us think harder and see the world differently. He discusses what a bad drawing is, and the nature of failure as well as success. The book, lavishly illustrated with over 50 of the author's own pictures, was written during the winter of 2012 and completed weeks before Andrew suffered the major stroke from which he is currently recovering - and finding himself drawing again.

In A Short Book About Painting, renowned broadcaster Andrew Marr tackles the subject of painting: inspiration, creativity, politics, beauty and form. How does the artist create a masterpiece? What constitutes good and bad technique? How important is the imagination? Following a serious stroke in 2013 that left him partially paralysed, Marr struggled with the physical rigours of painting using oils. This led to his wrestling with some of the very fundamental questions about painting as an art form in itself. Using historical examples as well as his own works of art to assert his point, Marr's provocative, political and instructive book is not just an essential resource for all amateur painters, it is a must-read for anyone fascinated by the creative process and the limits of human artistic achievement.

From the author of the widely acclaimed graphic novel Here, awarded the 2016 Prix D'or for best graphic album at Angoulême, a new graphic work that celebrates another aspect of his incomparable genius. Sequential Drawings gathers together more than a decade of McGuire's witty and endlessly inventive spots—a veritable short-story collection—each drawing given its own spread, which, in turn, assures for the reader the experience of surprise and delight that the drawings unfailingly deliver. Richard McGuire's first series of "spot" drawings debuted in The New Yorker in February 2005 for the magazine's 80th anniversary issue. Spot drawings, scattered among the magazine's text, had been a long-running feature of The New Yorker, and over the years, many artists had contributed them. But McGuire was the first to conceive them as a sequence, and his drawings were something altogether new: deceptively simple images that imbued the series with movement and narrative, telling their own unexpected stories.

A lively, colorful figure drawing instruction book that encourages aspiring illustrators to work in ink and watercolor to create quick, confident renderings of diverse, contemporary people.

By breaking figure and portrait drawing into the three major aspects of line, tone, and color and recommending time limits for each exercise, McLeod encourages working fast and fearless, rather than worrying about getting your figures just right. Filled with numerous illustrative examples of diverse, modern people, Draw People Every Day reflects practical, applicable techniques to get you drawing the people you see in the world around you with speed and proficiency.

Even the deadliest gangs in Chicagoland fear the Cross Crew and carefully avoid their cinderblock bunker headquarters: Red 71 is well known as the last place you'd want to go . . . unless you’re willing to risk it being the last place you'll ever go. The Crew is notorious for its ruthless efficiency and cold-blooded cunning. Why, then, would anyone be foolhardy enough to threaten them–and even more dangerous–their loved ones? As Cross catches the scent of a far-reaching conspiracy, he realizes that it all connects to an unexplained event in his past: a massacre from which he emerged inexplicably unscathed, save for the blue mark on his face that pulses when danger is near. That scar has been throbbing more frequently of late. . . . If he's reading the signs accurately, Cross might find himself again facing a terrible menace that is not altogether human. * MEMO FROM: Captain Nathan Lancaster, Chief, Gang Surveillance Unit TO: All Precincts, Focus Near-North ALERT: Incoming Threats to Cross Crew, Situation Highly Unstable DETAILS: “Cross” and known associates clearly organizing response to perceived pattern of threats. Gang Intelligence indicates high probability of pre-emptive strikes. Report any suspicious and/or unusual activity in Badlands area immediately, gang violence alert level RED.
